In depth

Verdict

Coolbane West had shown some promise before starting odds-on over the minimum trip here last month but had no answer to Fruits Of Glory. The longer trip will be in his favour and he should get into the frame. Itsnothingpersonal landed a point at Lisronagh in November and will have come on for last month's debut over timber at Down Royal while Kilford, a triple winner between the flags, ran very well behind two decent performers over this track and trip last time. PERFECT WOMAN, another winning point-to-pointer, has progressed steadily over hurdles and gave supporters of the odds-on Sambremont a fright at Tramore with the remainder in another parish. Mick Winters' mare looks the one to be on here though Master Appeal is one to watch out for as his stable is in better form and Tearaway Queen won't need to improve much to take a hand after her short-head defeat when a 100/1 chance at Down Royal.
