MOIQEN was going well when falling at Gowran last month then came up against a well handicapped horse in Foritsa at Thurles on Sunday. He's given another chance in an extremely tough event as he's 10lb lower over hurdles. Pumbaa makes his handicap debut after landing the odds in a maiden here last month but Not For Changing went up 11lb for scrambling home at Fairyhouse. Whiskey And Rye had some good form in the spring while the maiden Definite Elegance makes her handicap debut from what looks a fair mark.
