After landing a Navan bumper, CHANCOL looked a little bit one-paced over the minimum trip in a strong maiden hurdle at Leopardstown. He fell last time but this longer trip should suit and he gets the vote as Dantes Firth, who finished a close second to Railway Zira here three weeks ago before finding Grade 3 company too hot at Fairyhouse, was due to run there yesterday. She had the favourite Pink Hat well beaten in that former event and there doesn't appear any reason for a reversal of the form. Triumphant wasn't beaten far by Camelot in a Curragh Group 3 in May and will do better over hurdles in time while Polish Partisan would have a chance on his close third to Clonard Lad at Naas in November and his subsequent poor run may have come too soon.
