Noel Meade complicates matters by saddling Westhaven and THOUVA and though Paul Carberry is on board the former it's Davy Russell's mount, who was fancied to make a winning start over fences here in October but was impeded at a crucial stage, who looks the one to be on. Winning point-to-pointer Western Man makes his debut over regulation fences but his hurdling form was moderate so it's King Of The Refs who looks more of a threat as he ran some fair races in decent company over hurdles and will be better for the experience of his two chase runs to date.
