Linger won over hurdles at Galway before scoring on the Flat but will need to improve on previous efforts over fences to continue winning ways. Dark Outsider finished runner-up over a longer trip here before disappointing on his latest start but GENERALISATION (NAP) makes more appeal. Henry De Bromhead’s charge makes a quick reappearance after finishing a lot closer in a novice chase over track and trip earlier in the week and improvement is expected fitted with additional headgear now handicapping for the first time. Athloman Cottage was placed at Wexford in September last year but hasn’t raced since while Hard Bought finished second at the latter track last month but hasn’t won since 2017.
