This should be straightforward for ANNIE G. She made Gypsy Island work a lot harder than her price suggested at Tipperary and a similar sort of performance should take care of this lot. What Wonders Weave has experience on her side and that will count for a lot here, but the selection has more scope for improvement.
THE LITTLE YANK is now 0-18 over hurdles but this is unquestionably his easiest task, and the two-time bumper winner should get the job done. He is rated 111, 8lbs superior to Earl Of Desmond, and should strip fitter for his recent reappearance at Ballinrobe. The newcomer Digby is of interest, especially if attracting any support.
PYTHION (NAP) was rated 100 on the Flat not so long ago and any improvement on his recent fourth in a maiden hurdle at Ballinrobe should see him seal the deal here. Indeed, given the quality of the fare, he might not even have to improve at all. Nevendon looks his biggest danger, but keep an eye on the market with regard to the newcomer Offaly Star.
Plenty with chances and it could pay to take a chance on the four-year-old YULONG VOICE, who would have finished closer, but for a mistake two from home at Tramore on Saturday. Rare Conor and Added Bonus head the list of dangers, while one-time classy Flat performer The Tartan Spartan could be one to keep an eye on after an encouraging run last time.
Further improvement could come from PLACE DES VOSGES now upped in trip, having shown plenty of stamina on the flat two starts back. She gets the vote ahead of proven stayers Mindsmadeup and Brosna George.
Having shown resolution when winning at Killarney, SAMCRO can follow up here, his rider’s claim a bonus in a race in which the lightly-weighted Abbey Magic could emerge a real threat. Darasso is interesting off the back of a resounding hurdles win at Killarney, where he had Snow Falcon behind.
Quite competitive. Trainer David Christie is mob-handed here and supplies the most likely winner in WINGED LEADER, who gets the vote ahead of On The Sod, Warriors Tale and Sliabh Mhuire Lass.
Bardenstown Lad couldn’t have done much more at Tipperary and looks a nice prospect, but BERET ROUGE is preferred. She hasn’t taken to jumping and was a beaten favourite on both starts over hurdles, but her wide-margin Roscommon bumper win very easy on the eye so she is given another chance. Dicebox could reward each-way punters at a nice price.
