ASHJAR, placed a couple of times in minor company on the Flat in France, made an encouraging debut behind odds-on stablemate Adriana Des Morres at Punchestown on New Year's Eve and can take this before going on to better things. Street Party scored on the Flat in November and made a promising start over timber behind Wicklow Brave at Cork. Shutter Island was very moderate on the Flat but did better on his latest start over hurdles behind Kitten Rock at Navan. Voice Of A Curlew looks the type to do better with age as does Lisa's Legacy, who won twice on the level in the UK.
