Tullamore Dew was just beaten over 3m at Ascot in February but has shown little in four runs since, albeit in decent company. Trifollet's hunter chase form wouldn't be good enough and Stoney's Treasure has clearly had his problems recently and may just need this. RESTLESS HARRY, a Grade 2 winner over hurdles, is still seeking a first win over fences but placed efforts last season behind Join Together and Teaforthree was decent form and he should be approaching peak fitness now. Getting 7lb from the enigmatic Rose Of The Moon, he has to be the choice though David O'Meara's charge is on a hat-trick over fences after wins at Wetherby and Sedgefield.
