KAPCORSE has a chasing pedigree so is almost certain to improve on his form over hurdles. The five-year-old has been found a nice introduction here with Bryony Frost’s claim a massive plus. Middlebrow has the form in the book with wins at Catterick and Musselburgh and a second last time, though he is probably weighted to the hilt. Fenlon's Hill produced his best run so far last time at Leopardstown, however, though was beaten off a 14lb lower mark when last in this country. Glenforde has had a wind operation since last seen and looks best of the rest if that has the desired effect.
