Letter Of Credit won a couple of bumpers and made a decent start over hurdles at Clonmel. He'll improve for that but has over 7l to find with the runner-up that day MISSISSIPPI RIVER, who can go one better as he looked potentially useful and would have finished even closer but for a mistake at the second last. Winning point-to-pointer Run With The Wind scored on the Flat at Listowel last month and almost followed up on his first start over timber a week later on the same track. He'll be suited by testing ground and looks a threat as does Il Fenomeno, a Group 3 winner on the Flat in Italy who has been very highly tried on both starts for Noel Meade.
