BALLYROE RAMBLER (NAP) had been chasing before reverting to hurdles over this course and distance and finishing runner-up to Go Paddy Go. He could have done without a 3lb rise but still looks well enough treated to go one better. Balkinstown has yet to win in 14 starts over timber and is only slowly coming down the weights while Love The Feeling's best form has been on much quicker ground. Ontopoftheworld doesn't look particularly well handicapped but Lets High Five It will be suited by dropping back to the minimum as he's been showing good speed before fading over further. Black Ice followed his fortuitous victory at Limerick with a poor run at Gowran and All About Alfie has been beaten a long way in both starts since his victory at Cork in November.
