Three Kings, who showed the occasional glimpses of form over hurdles, has reverted to Rules after landing a point at Tyrella last month. Ask Heather has completed a hat-trick between the flags, the latest after coming to a standstill at the last, so she's respected on her first start over regulation fences. Motcomb Street became disappointing over hurdles and has had a couple of recent runs at Dundalk but Snugsborough Hall has run well in a couple of Punchestown handicaps recently so has to go on the shortlist. Winning hurdler ROXBORO ROAD was having only his second start over fences when fourth on the latter track last month and has the scope to do better so looks the one to be on. Kilbarry Calling has only had one run over the bigger obstacles when runner-up on fast going at Thurles so she should be capable of better.
