Draycott Place was in very good form over fences last spring and can revert to hurdles on a lower mark. He had a pipe-opener at Fairyhouse on Sunday and should be ready for this. Joshua Lane hasn't done as well as expected after his placed effort in the 2014 Champion Bumper at Cheltenham but Conright Boy ploughed through the mud at Down Royal last month for an impressive maiden success and a mark of 114 looks lenient for his handicap debut. LAKE FIELD has been in excellent form on heavy going and looked certain to follow up his Tramore victory when falling at the last at Limerick. He's been raised 4lb but should gain compensation. Tangled Web looks a big threat as he was returning from a very long break when an excellent fourth behind the in-form Oscar Sam at Punchestown on New Year's Eve.
