SIZING BRISBANE is a half-brother to seven winners including several bumpers and hurdlers. This doesn't look the greatest of races so he can make a winning start for Willie and Patrick Mullins. Auld Sthock won a point at Dromahane in November but it's the mare Flowerpicker who may provide the biggest threat. She's a half-sister to a winning bumper and a 1m2f winner on the Flat so should have enough pace and her trainer has a good record in these races. Sunsetstorise is a half-brother to two winning hurdlers and is one to note in a race where the market should provide a good guide.
