Ballybrowney Jack won a Wexford maiden last month though that was over the minimum and he makes his handicap debut. Big Bad Brian won a maiden hurdle over this trip in 2016 and was having only his second subsequent run and making his chasing debut when runner-up at Downpatrick last month. Touch Base is another having his first start in a handicap and he's always looked a staying type but ROI DE DUBAI was impressive over 2m4f at Down Royal and can defy a 9lb rise over this longer trip which looks certain to suit. Our Rachael looks well handicapped and though her stamina has to be taken on trust she hasn't been stopping over shorter distances.
