Way Up In The Air made a very promising start to his chasing career when runner-up to Jim Will Fix It at Punchestown in October but, like the winner and the two immediately behind, he's run poorly since so the form doesn't look as good as at first glance. It isn't easy to recommend KILLTILANE ROSE breaking her duck on her 24th career start but different tactics were tried when she attempted to make all over 2m6f here last month and she very nearly succeeded. She can hopefully finally lose her maiden tag as Lough Roe Lady has disappointed since showing early promise over fences. Ivy Glen looks more of a threat as she showed much improved form from her opening run over fences to finish third to Byerley Babe at Limerick.
