It's just over a year since PASSAGE VENDOME was finishing second in a Grade 3 at Tipperary. He hasn't really taken to fences since but should get back to winning ways here if anywhere near his best. The danger may be Hit The Headlines, who has also been chasing but hasn't raced since March. Gentleman Duke won a Sligo maiden hurdle in August and was third over fences at Listowel last month so should at least make the frame as none of the others have shown much lately.
