DARROUN probably hasn't done as well as expected over hurdles but is still a youngster and the allowance he receives can help him make a winning debut over fences. Ballyburke will exploit any chinks in his armour as he's been running in very tough handicaps without being disgraced. Heaney, who won three times over hurdles last summer, hasn't quite got the hang of jumping fences so far but it's only a matter of time and he should be winning soon. Dale Street is making his chasing debut but arrives in good form having scored on fast ground over hurdles at Limerick last month.
