By Tom Weekes - GET MY DRIFT retuned from a mini-break to win last month and reverts to a handicap chase. Rated 134 over hurdles last year, he beat a useful mare to win at Kilbeggan and had previously run well in a Grade B chase on handicap debut, over a similar distance, last February. Vado Forte was seven lengths behind the selection in that Leopardstown race and while now 6lb better off, was well held at Aintree in April and returns following a mini-break. Kildorrery is an able type at this level and is well suited by two-miles but doesn't appear ahead of the handicapper. The Greek was well beaten in a much stronger race at the Punchestown festival but has some claims on best form while Filon D'oudairies might improve from a recent reappearance run over hurdles.
