Gordon Elliott's Halling's Treasure is in action

There are plenty of big fields for punters to get to grips with at Tramore, with the opening 16,095 Average Pick 6 Dividend Maiden Hurdle the easiest to solve, on paper at least.

Heading the 10 runners is Gordon Elliott's Halling's Treasure, who has kept good company but let down favourite-backers at Navan at the start of March.

Wood Breizh didn't make the cut for Cheltenham but was only a length and a half behind Halling's Treasure at Naas back in January, and that pair appear to have it between them.

On recent evidence, two horses stand out in the Live The Dream With Tote Handicap Chase, because Preswell Lad scored at Downpatrick, with a couple of these opponents trailing in his wake, and he has Friday's Wexford scorer Lord Alfie to beat.

Roman Numeral and Foolish Notions shared the minor honours behind subsequent dual winner Snowell at Clonmel and resume rivalry in the 1,760 Average Jackpot Dividend Handicap Hurdle.

Also in contention is Pleased As Punch, who hasn't been seen since failing to justify favouritism at Fairyhouse back in January.

Vasco Du Mee is another who could not reward market support on his most recent outing, but Elliott switches him back from fences for the Live The Dream With Tote Handicap Hurdle, although he is forced to shoulder 11st 12lb and may be vulnerable to last week's Wexford runner-up Drive On Locky if Philip Fenton's gelding makes it off the reserves' bench.

Easyondeye easily accounted for Slighamach at Downpatrick and there is no apparent reason why the placings should be reversed in the Tote Trifecta Rollover Hunters Chase.

Cloudy Rock, who contests the Live The Dream With Tote INH Flat Race, was a bitter disappointment when heavily backed for her first start under Rules but did too much in the early stages and it should be remembered that she landed a point-to-point by 15 lengths.
