Attaglance is only a pound higher than when winning this two years ago off the back of an excellent run at Cheltenham. He was only beaten half-a-length over fences at The Festival last month and is back in form. Caid Du Berlais had Hazy Tom well behind when a staying-on third at The Festival while Lyvius came out best of a number of these that contested the County Hurdle, though he's yet to suggest he'll be suited by this extra half-mile. Stonebrook steps out of novice company for the first time but McCoy rides and he can't be ignored while the maiden Little Jon ran well for sixth in the Imperial Cup and stays this longer trip. He could reward each-way support but ZABANA made an impressive reappearance at Leopardstown in January and continues on an upward curve. He may well be capable of defying his new mark as he comfortably has the beating of recent Wexford scorer Mister Hotelier.
