Despite a serious concern raised by the fact he has fallen on both hunter chase attempts so far EDDIES MIRACLE gets the vote in the hope that champion point-to-point rider Barry O'Neill can get him around safely. He has a good record in points, and could have too much fire-power for Follow The Moon and Senators Glory who took the minor honours behind a promising young horse at Limerick. Jamie Codd's mount Sizingdowntherhine will be right in the mix if recapturing his 2016 form after two uninspiring runs during 2017. [Alan Sweetman]

Won at Ballinaboola on third outing of 2017 autumn campaign, extending win record in points to a highly respectable 5-13; ran well in a hunter chase at Cork in November, though well held by the 11l winner Wilcosdiana when falling at the last; worrying that he also fell on his only other hunter chase run, at Downpatrick last May; looked set for victory at the time.

Experienced veteran pointer, six wins and seven places from 20 starts; latest success was obtained at the main expense of former smart track performer Sir Des Champs at Turtulla in November; ran as well as could have been expected when chasing home the up-and-coming Burning Ambition in a similar event to this at Limerick, with Senators Glory 2 3/4l back in third

Modest record in points, 1-14, but in good form at the moment as shown by Knockinroe second; probably surpassed that effort when third behind the promising Burning Ambition and today's rival Follow The Moon at Limerick.
