HILLMAN went up 8lb after scoring over the course and distance last May. He will have needed his reappearance then fell while in with a chance at Navan so should be ready to regain the winning thread. Western Man has never won a race under Rules and is better handicapped over hurdles. Betterthanalright is generally thereabouts without winning but Flying Windsor's surprise victory at Fairyhouse in November was followed by a poor run at Wexford. Sherika scored over hurdles at Thurles in January and is much better in over the smaller obstacles.
