ROUGH JUSTICE makes his debut over hurdles and though the winning point-to-pointer proved only moderate in bumpers he's always looked more likely to do better when tackling obstacles and can make a winning start. Bishopslough will ensure he gets a good test as he ran very well behind Theatre Mill at Fairyhouse where the fast going may not have been in his favour. Do Na Paisti hasn't done much wrong and he's another who may have been finding the going a bit too lively but Wilde Sapphire was very disappointing when strongly fancied at Tramore a couple of weeks ago. Everlasting Spring beat a big field in a fast-ground bumper at Down Royal in August.
