In depth


Indian File began well over fences with a good third behind Balnagon Boy at Fairyhouse but he's run moderately in two subsequent starts. Katnap has had plenty of experience over fences and finished runner-up five times but he was beaten a long way at Fairyhouse last month while Rory O'Moore has a similar profile, though he's been racing over hurdles recently and not showing much. WES HARDIN only showed moderate form over hurdles but should make a better chaser once he learns to jump better. He made a few mistakes when third on his debut here a month ago but intensive schooling should have ironed out those problems and he looks the one to be on.
