Winning point-to-pointer and chaser Inamalabalusaloon has shown very little over hurdles but is on such a lowly mark that he has to be taken seriously. Cerveza Dinero has the form to win this at his best and though well beaten on his two latest starts should now be reaching his peak. Both Quartetto and WESTERN MAN have been mixing hurding and chasing and it's the latter, who won well over these obstacles at Fairyhouse last month, who is handed the vote. Cool Oscar hasn't been seen since a poor effort when favourite at Navan in November but his two previous runs put him right in the frame for this.
