In depth


MAX DYNAMITE has won five races including a York Group 2 and he's earnt a fortune in place money having been in the frame in a Galway Hurdle and two Melbourne Cups. He's making a belated debut over fences but it didn't stop Faugheen and he should make a successful start. Mormon is lightly raced and has some decent form over timber but was always likely to be a chaser and his trainer does so well with similar types. Goodnightngodbless makes a quick reappearance after finishing second on her chasing bow at Naas on Sunday though she never looked like winning. Advantage Point, a winning bumper and hurdler, found 2m too short at Punchestown in October and is definitely the type to do well over fences while Elwood will improve for his chasing debut at Navan.
