In depth


OFFICER CADET fell on his chasing debut then ran very well when runner-up over a shorter trip here. A bad mistake put paid to his chances at Kilbeggan but an error-free round can see him gain his first victory over jumps. Valentino's Choice was behind in that race on this track and looks held while the hunter Firmount Gent hasn't been seen since beaten a short-head in May of last year. Drive The Bus ran his best race to date at Tipperary last time and a similar run will see him in the picture.
