Point-to-point form is the determining factor here which highlights the claims of HAND ACT OR PART, winner of his last two outings between the flags. He was also good enough to land an Irish point by a distance when only a four-year-old back in 2010 and could still have more to offer at the age of seven. Roman Cruise and Lucky Lane have both landed pointing success in recent weeks and will arrive in good heart, whilst Miss Chatterbox is also respected and will find this notably easier than when last of five in a Wetherby hunter chase behind the talented Double Mead. She has since performed creditably since when runner-up between the flags.
