Last years winner Tales of Milan ticks far too many boxes here to be ignored at 25/1. He is down to near last years winning mark , with the aid of the claimer of the moment to be effectively running of a lower mark here. He has been poor enough since but surly its all about today .
1 point win 25/1 365/tote/boyles/fred
Seemed to get tailed off but rallied a bit at the end. Not really near good enough .
Dare to endeavor is one ice had my eye on for a few runs. He caught the eye on his second last run but was seriously hampered last time out. He should be running on here at the end when others have long given up the ghost. I just feel that he has a decent performance in him .and at 66/1 he is certainly worth a shot. He has decent form in the uk before moving to Ireland.

What a run, I just watched it there and he seemed to loose a load of ground about 5 to but come back in great fashion to have a chance going to the last. Simply a great run to finish 2nd.
I think this race and conditions are going to suit Mwaleshi. He caught the eye around here on his reappearance this year and although he was disappointing next time out the softer ground here will help. He is on a very good mark on his best form and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he was to be much better today.

Fell midway travelling well.
This race will also suit Fago with a nice racing weight. The trip was too short last time and he will improve here. He is a strong traveler and 12/1 is value..
1pt win 12/1 Generally
Never jumping at all well
Fort Smith is interesting here off a good hurdles mark and some decent hurdles form in Ireland. Its his first run for his new trainer and we have to take it on trust that he is fit but its worth the gamble at 20/1.

Stayed on for 3rd spot and might pick up something soon enough over hurdles.
