ASITSOHAPPENS showed plenty of promise last season and was well supported on his comeback at Cork but was worried out of it close home by Benrouge. He would have won but for a mistake two out and compensation awaits. Sizing Granite made a very encouraging hurdles debut when a close third to the useful Clondaw Court at Leopardstown. With improvement guaranteed, he looks a big threat. Tawseef, three times a winner on the Flat in the UK, will be losing his maiden tag before long judged on his two runs to date and The Winkler has come up against very useful opposition over timber since completing a double in bumpers. Zigger Zagger made all to land a Fairyhouse bumper last month and looks a smart recruit to hurdling for Noel Meade.
