There have been a few shocks in this in the past but it would be the biggest surprise yet if MAKE YOUR MARK isn't up to this after he made all for a very easy victory at Cork. His overall form is in a different league and he's likely to be heading for Galway. Tugboat is also likely to be heading for the Festival as he won over hurdles there last year and has been confined to the Flat in his most recent starts. Shabra Charity has won once in 30 starts over timber and is better over fences these days but could still hang on for a place.
