WATCHING BRIEF

Stonemaster, a beaten odds-on favourite on his chasing debut at Punchestown recently, holds an entry back at the Kildare venue on Wednesday.

While it was disappointing that Dessie Hughes' charge didn't collect last time, it took a very polished performance from On The Way Out to topple him, and he didn't do much wrong on the day.

He jumped and travelled well enough throughout, but simply ran out of gas at the business end before keeping on for second. If he takes his chance on Wednesday, he should be a far more dangerous proposition.
