A Twist Of Fate ran his best race over hurdles at Navan a few days ago and there should be more to come as he showed plenty of potential in bumpers. Sizing India couldn't match the pace of Roja Dove at Downpatrick where the extra two furlongs found him out. He should be better over this trip but the concession of weight to DO NA PAISTI may prove beyond her, especially as Shane Butler's claim will be an aid, as the latter was only narrowly beaten on his only start over hurdles at Kilbeggan. Jansboy is another receiving plenty of weight with his rider's claim taken into consideration and he's been going well enough to get involved.
