Blissful Moment, a winner on the Flat for Sir Michael Stoute, has been a disappointment so far over timber but there's still time to improve and this doesn't look too difficult. Killshallago has shown promise in bumpers and on his recent hurdling debut at Fairyhouse while hurdling newcomer Zane Grey is the type to do better. Willie Mullins complicates matters by saddling Raise Hell, who has shown little to date and may do better when sent chasing, and TOUCH THE EDEN, who had two runs in the Provinces in France early last year. While he's very much an unknown this won't take much winning and he's given the nod to make a winning start for new connections. Band Leader has a bumper success on this track to his credit and may do best of the remainder.
