Marshim is still 7lb higher than when scoring at Wexford in October but is one of the more likely winners here. Call Rog could figure as he wasn't beaten far on his handicap debut at Thurles after winning a maiden hurdle at Wexford but Misca Musca has more to do than when scoring at Navan and Hair Oil Jimmy has been below par so far this term. TREAT YOURSELF will be fancied to follow up last month's C&D victory, despite an 11lb jump in the weights. He was making his seasonal reappearance that day yet won with plenty in hand and should strip fitter this afternoon.
