BALNASLOW is hardly a stable star but he's been competing at a completely different level to this, including when fourth in the Kim Muir at Cheltenham last time, and should have few problems gaining his second victory over fences. Hunting Party was tailed off when pulling up in that latter race while Harpsy Chord has failed to fulfil the promise shown in his early starts over fences. Ballyfinboy beat a strong field in a handicap at the Galway Festival last year but has gone backwards though he looks the main threat as Annie Oakley is making her debut over the bigger obstacles.
