This should tell us plenty about TELL US MORE, who was purchased by Gigginstown for an astonishing £290,000 at the Cheltenham Sales in December after overcoming trouble in-running to make a winning start in a point-to-point at Tattersalls Farm. There'll be some long faces if he can't win this though here are several promising types in opposition including the four-year-old Altiepix, who started odds-on for his debut at Askeaton last month and came home by a distance. Amron Kris produced a good performance to make a winning start at Dromahane where he had better fancied rivals behind while Mikey O'Connor's presence on board Ballyadeen will ensure the Templenacarriga winner gets a good ride. Grand Isola was an impressive winner when scoring by a distance at Tinahely in January so is another to keep an eye on.
