Half of this field can easily be dismissed but that still leaves about a dozen with chances. Chief Admiral is improving and will be suited by the testing conditions and Notimetoserve would have no problems getting involved on last year's form. Gortroe didn't appear to enjoy the heavy ground at Thurles last time but Troll D'Oudairies should do better now reverting to hurdling after a poor spell over fences. Bowfinger has shown nothing so far but wouldn't be with Willie Mullins unless thought capable of better though DAVY FROM MILAN is handed the vote despite a moderate effort at Naas last time as his earlier form against tough opposition gives him the edge.
