Vineman hasn't run since a fair debut at Hereford in March of last year but that's rarely a problem for one from his yard and if he's ready he can get involved. Ballybolley has some decent form in Irish point-to-points and is one to note but DELTA FORTY is probably the one to be on. Keith Reveley's charge showed the benefit of his opening run when beating a big field at Uttoxeter in April and with further progress likely can continue where he left off. Di's Gift faded close home over this course and distance last time but has plenty of time to improve.
