Daly Tiger made a successful chasing debut at Tipperary in October and has been operating at graded level subsequently. Bay Hill has won over fences, hurdles and on the Flat since the summer but was a long way behind ZERO TEN when only fifth behind the very smart Cash Back at Naas last month. The runner-up couldn't make an impression on the winner but won't be facing anything of his class here. Early Doors, a Grade 3 winner over hurdles, has tackled much longer trips than this in his two starts over fences, the best of them when runner-up over 3m1f here on New Year's Eve, while the remaining pair have plenty to do.
