Winning point-to-pointer CHUTE HALL made a promising start in a bumper in April and though a beaten favourite at Listowel last month he may just have needed the run and looks ready to gain his first success under Rules. Fluspar looks a big danger as he was staying on well at the finish on his debut over 2m2f at Galway and will appreciate the easier conditions and longer trip. Leavethelighton was probably a bit unlucky at Listowel, his first start over this trip, and he should be thereabouts while Itsonthelist also ran well at Listowel and can get involved in what looks a fair contest.
