King High was engaged in the 5.05 here yesterday so that result should be monitored. DARENJAN ran very well over fences at Galway and, as he can revert to hurdling on a 14lb lower mark, he looks the one to be on. The four-year-old Money Spider scored at Bellewstown last month but couldn't quite cope with a 7lb rise at Kilbeggan and is another 1lb higher. Invincible Don looks the main threat as he's been in fine form on quick ground over the past couple of months and still looks well treated.
