AWAY WE GO is no stable star but is better than he showed at Punchestown last time. A winner at Fairyhouse in October, he ran badly at Navan last month and was never really in contention over a trip too short last time. He is very well treated over hurdles compared to his chase mark and can get back to winning ways. Drawn N Drank has found his form in no uncertain terms and even a 10lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run after his facile victory at Limerick. Mazuri Cowboy has been racing over fences and won at Limerick last month while Carries Darling found 2m much too short at Tramore last time and beat a big field over 2m4f at Clonmel earlier. Cyprusormilan has been going well enough but looks a few pounds high in the weights.
