COGRYHILL looked such a promising performer after his victory here in October that he was sent into Grade 2 and 3 company but found it too daunting. Back at this level he can get back on track. Fearachain won a Wexford maiden on very fast ground last summer and ran well in handicaps later though he was well beaten when sent to Cheltenham in November. Round Tower has won a bumper here and though still a maiden over timber he's run several good races on the track and warmed up with a run on the Flat last month. Kilkishen is rarely beaten far and was in winning form around this time a year ago so he looks best of the remainder as Danielle's Journey appears best on ground with some give.
