Few have realistic chances here and though City Line makes his debut over fences after showing consistent form over hurdles he's still a maiden after 29 starts. Useful hurdler Ballysteen has some potential though he's yet to show it over fences but Line View was in good form over hurdles last summer on fast ground and, as a winning point-to-pointer, should take to jumping fences. Three-times winning hurdler Rock County has another go at chasing after three unsuccessful attempts back in 2011 while Tabac Brun beat a big field in a Gowran maiden hurdle in October. Along with the lightly-raced and promising Third Opinion, who beat the useful Curley Bill over hurdles and has experience of fences, he looks the main threat to LOCAL CELEBRITY. Willie Mullins' charge is no stable star but his staying-on effort over the minimum trip here in November is the best form on view and that could be enough.
