Dual winning point-to-pointer Bowfinger doesn't really have the form for this but wouldn't still be with the champion trainer unless thought capable of winning races. Caballo De Marcus was touched off on the line by Living Next Door at Limerick and has the scope for further improvement though this looks destined for GORTROE. He came in for good support at Gowran last week and though finding Dante Anna too strong was conceding a stone to the winner. Nashville Swing makes his hurdling debut after a promising bumper debut at Ballinrobe in May but Troubled, who would be the form pick on his two excellent placed efforts in the spring, ran very poorly when returning to action in October and may be best watched.
