FormscanBy Mark Nunan - THE SLIDING ROCK is the highest-rated of these over hurdles where her best effort saw her finish second to subsequent Grade One winner Skyace at Punchestown in December. She should come on from her chasing debut third at Ballinrobe last month and the form of that race has worked out quite well. The daughter of Shantou goes well for Bryan Cooper and, even though she would prefer further, can get off the mark over the larger obstacles. She Tops The Lot has plenty of experience over fences and has twice been runner-up to course specialist Downthecellar at Tramore. Manitopark AA has run poorly a couple of times since winning a maiden hurdle at Cork but could be a different proposition on chase debut, while Kitty Galore is a useful front-runner over hurdles and is not out of it if her jumping holds up on her first attempt at this discipline.%0A%0A
