Douneve started long odds-on when making his debut for Willie Mullins in a bumper here in December but couldn't cope with Tidy Zag, who has been well beaten subsequently. No doubt he'll improve over hurdles but he'll find MAZURI COWBOY a very tough opponent. Eoin Doyle's charge has followed up his victory between the flags with two fine runs over timber and he was staying on strongly behind subsequent winner Changing Times over 2m4f at Fairyhouse last time. It's difficult to enthuse over the remainder but Gentle Cloud showed a little promise over a trip too short here last time and is the type to improve.
