Rupert Lamb didn't jump all that well at Fairyhouse and was run out of it by Western Leader. Today's shorter trip should be to his advantage and he'll take some beating but PRIMA VISTA should have his measure. Noel Meade's charge, a Grade 2 winner over hurdles, has come up against several potentially useful chasers in his four starts over the bigger obstacles and gave supporters of Alderwood a fright at Navan a couple of weeks ago, form that would be good enough for this. Grade 3 hurdles winner My Murphy will be better for his chasing debut at Naas in November where he didn't jump with any fluency and The Real Article can improve from his two runs over fences. Toner D'Oudairies is another fomer useful hurdler making his way over the bigger obstacles and there's more to come from him.
