Gordon Elliot traditionally does well at this meeting and his METAL MAN
is taken to follow up his recent maiden hurdle success Navan on his handicap debut. It took a while for the four-year-old to get the hang of things over hurdles but with his confidence up he can land this especially if given a soft lead. Granny Knot
showed some good battling qualities to score on only his second run over hurdles last time at Punchestown. If this slight step back in trip does not inconvenience him them he can go well. Strong market support for recent winner Lily's Gem
would suggest a degree of stable confidence and it should be noted.
