Giant Sequoia was in good form around this time last year and has dropped to a very lowly mark despite being lightly raced. He's on the short-list along with winning point-to-pointer Sweet Sylvia, who ran easily her best race over timber at Tramore last time. Ever Dreaming ran a shocker at Kilbeggan last time and the handicapper may now have got to her so a chance is taken on BELIAR. Eoin Doyle's charge doesn't win very often over hurdles but he's been in fine form on the Flat recently and has slipped to a mark he looks capable of winning from over timber.
