Court In Session was engaged at Hereford yesterday and may have only been entered here as a precaution. Sire Collonges has been lightly raced since joining Paul Nicholls after winning over hurdles at Auteuil two years ago and has failed to complete the last twice. He could do better over fences, however. Sweet Irony has won a couple of times over the smaller obstacles and also has scope but there wouldn't have been much between him and CINDERELLA ROSE over hurdles and Kim Bailey's mare receives a7lb allowance here. She's from the same family as useful chasers Frosty Canyon and Alvino so shouldn't have a problem adapting to fences and gets the vote.
