Many of these have had enough chances including winning bumper Batcio, who has been well beaten over hurdles though could be suited by the step up in trip. Licklighter also carries extra for a bumper success but was having his 14th start over hurdles when well beaten at Fairyhouse on Monday. Another with a penalty, Zaofu, was in good form on quick ground last summer and should be winning in the next few weeks but Touch Of Oscar has only been staying on at one pace over the minimum. The latter is likely to be suited by the extra but TRAPPIST MONK has already proved himself over the trip having finished a close third at Wexford earlier this month and Noel Meade's charge can come out on top here.
