Halling's Treasure, a winner at Kempton for Andrew Balding in September, couldn't cope with easy winner Adriana Des Mottes on his hurdling debut at Punchestown but time is likely to tell he was taking on something special. The more experienced Indian Icon was 4l away in fourth and looks held. Sea Beat made a belated racecourse debut at Leopardstown last month and produced a very encouraging display behind Plinth. Ivan Grozny, who had raced on the Flat in France, was just in front of him and there's little between the pair on that evidence while Gordon Elliott's Landau will have benefited from the experience. Wood Breizh looks the second choice of Willie Mullins' pair but should improve on his run behind Windsor Queen at Limerick last month, his first start since arriving from France. SARDINIA is one of the best-bred horses to go jumping for some time and the son of Galileo, who gained a very impressive victory on the Flat at Navan in October for Aidan O'Brien, is taken to make a successful hurdling debut.
