Port Rashid, who makes his chasing debut, won a maiden hurdle here in April and was there with every chance when falling two out at Cork. Pleasure Dome, three times a winner on the Flat, has only shown moderate form over hurdles and on her chasing bow for Willie Mullins at Kilbeggan though she's expected to improve. Cotton Jenny was well beaten into third on her chasing debut at Killarney but Dawn In The Park has shown potential and should do better on the quicker ground. RI AN RIAN didn't do much over timber but was well supported for her chasing bow at Downpatrick where she was only headed in the closing stages after leading three out. Normal progress can see her go one better. Gold Smoke found 3m1f taxing her stamina at Wexford after performing with credit at this sort of trip.
