Dr Linzi is penalised for an impressive bumper success at Galway and though he showed nothing between the flags should make a decent hurdler. KOKO LANE also carries extra for a bumper success and a couple of recent runs on the Flat should have put him straight enough to make a winning start over timber. Ontheground has the best form over hurdles but he's still a maiden after ten starts and Theshowisover has more scope. Henry De Bromhead's charge made a highly satisfactory start over timber at Tipperary on Monday and with that under his belt looks a real threat.
