The Game Changer has won three of his five starts over fences and was conceding the promising Rock The World 7lb when beaten a couple of lengths in a Galway Grade 3 last time. He'll again take some stopping but has to give SIZING PLATINUM 3lb and that could prove just beyond him. Henry De Bromhead's charge beat Rock The World almost four lengths off levels at the Galway Festival and looks potentially very useful. King of The Picts had been running well on the Flat all summer before a decent return to hurdling at Perth but takes on a pair of useful performers on his chasing debut. Give Her Bach was a comfortable winner on her second start over fences at Tramore in August though that was over 2m6f on very fast ground.
