Winning bumper SHAKE IT UP was having his first start since June and making his hurdling debut when close-up over a slightly shorter trip at Limerick last month. He'll have benefited from the run and this should prove within his capabilities. Illusion Of Time, runner-up on his only start between the flags, has run reasonably well in bumpers and jumping will be more his game. Vincent Row has easily the best form of any of these but he's now gone 20 races without winning. He could just need better ground before finally losing his maiden tag. Somethingprecious looked a certain future winner when a close third to Rock's Field at Punchestown in February but never recovered from a very tardy start at Clonmel earlier this month.
