Winning bumper and hurdler TOUCH THE EDEN will be a short price here and should have few problems. His narrow defeat by Foxrock at around this trip on his chasing debut at Fairyhouse was a cracking effort as the winner has gone on to land a couple of Grade 2 events. He was disappointing when tackling 3m on very heavy going at Punchestown as he ran out of steam and had no answer to Rogue Angel, who has since finished tailed off behind Foxrock. Back over a suitable trip this looks his for the taking. Shamiran is a useful handicap hurdler who made a pleasing start over fences behind Leavethelighton at Gowran and should have few problems finding a race soon while three-times hurdles winner Miss Xian makes her chasing debut and her pedigree suggests she should have no problem jumping fences.
