Celtic Abbey won a bumper at Ballinrobe last summer for Pat Fahy and has shown some ability in three runs over hurdles. He should make the frame in this while there is probably more to come from Market Rasen third Lord Navits and Jonjo O'Neill will be hoping one of his three runners can bustle up the principals, though all have a bit to find if they are to finish ahead of THINGER LICHT. The latter races for the first time for Tony Carroll but his form over fences and hurdles in France looks a cut above these. Tracking Time could challenge for a place and looks the pick of the remainder.
