Formscan By Gary Carson - SPEED DIAL comes into this in great order and the style of his victories means he may just be staying ahead of the handicapper. Pat Hughes' charge has to be delivered late but he won with a bit in hand at Fairyhouse last time and a 6lb rise for that victory doesn't look harsh. Tim Carroll gets on really well with him and the pairing look the ones to beat. Great Oak has to be a danger. There is no doubt she is a better chaser than hurdler but the fact that she is rated so much lower over hurdles means she warrants respect here and she ran well when last seen over timber at this course last month. Rookery Rebel is a consistent sort and has slipped to a nice mark over hurdles. He could go well while point-to-pointer Lord Multifix is another interesting contender off a low hurdles rating.
