YEOMAN finally got off the mark over fences at the 17th time of asking at Galway last month and the assessor hasn't overreacted with a 5lb rise. David Splaine's claim completely wipes out the extra and a follow-up looks on the cards. Under The Spell has done nothing since a fine run at Roscommon in August and winning point-to-pointer and hurdler Dog Barrel Hill has been unplaced in all five starts over regulation fences. Clashnabrook, three times a winner over hurdles, has only had three runs over fences and could prove the main threat with his lowly weight.
