BLOOD COTIL only showed modest form on the Flat and over timber in France but has joined Willie Mullins and that should enable him to make the expected progress and produce a winning debut for the yard. Casual Creeper hasn't won on the Flat but should be doing so shortly over timber if his recent second to Our Conor at Navan, when Shabra Emperor was beaten a long way, is a guide. Hazariban, a winner on the Flat at Gowran in September, ran a very good race behind Brog Deas at Cork earlier this month and should find a race before long. Jackemil arrives in good form having scored twice on the level in the past couple of months increasing his rating by 17lb as a consequence but Crystal Wings has only proved moderate on the level and will need to improve.
