Rodriguez won this after a long break a year ago and is taking a similar path though he was in poor form over jumps when last seen in the summer. False Economy is a useful hurdler who scored at Limerick in November and has only run once subsequently. Cottesloe has won twice over 1m4f but gave no indication that he stayed this far on his only start over the trip and was behind KNIGHT'S PARADE when placed in the race won by Carried last month so the latter is taken to go one better. Carvelas scored over 1m4f in January but his best run came when second over tonight's track and trip in September. Aughnacurraveel found 1m4f much too short here last month and will be staying on when others have had enough.
