GIANT'S QUEST has by far the best form of those with experience over timber. He would have given Rawnaq more to think about but for being impeded in a Punchestown handicap last time and this looks within his capabilities. Silver Canyon was having just his second start over timber behind Castletown Bridge at Sligo and is entitled to improve enough to get involved while winning bumper Sizing India will have learnt from his hurdling debut at Ballinrobe. Fairview Star and River Slaney look best of the remainder with the former arriving in good form from the Flat.
