RUBY WALSH:

“Willie has plenty of runners at the top of the betting in this one. Allegorie De Vassy won impressively at Fairyhouse, beating Monishter Are Mwee. She jumped brilliantly that day and she could be a hell of a chaser.

“Dinoblue won impressively at Clonmel earlier this month, beating La Prima Donna, who has serious pedigree as she’s out of Princesse D’Anjou. That’s strong form and it should hold up.

Brandy Love was solid at Naas and she also finished third behind Grangee in a bumper at the Dublin Racing Festival last year. She’s a pretty good mare who’s guaranteed to stay. The new course will suit her well too.

“Grangee is a smart mare but she probably got involved a bit too soon at Leopardstown over Christmas. She played her hand a little too soon but she could improve.

“Statuaire really surprised me at Fairyhouse when she beat My Mate Mozzie. I didn’t think she could do that off her rating at the time. That’s rock solid form beating My Mate Mozzie.

“Glens Of Antrim finally got off the mark over Christmas, beating Emily Roebling at Limerick. She could improve and be an option too.

“I don’t think there’s a major standout out of them that immediately draws your attention. I’d love to have another look at them if I were Paul Townend before picking which one I was going to ride!

“I think there’s a good chance we might see three or four of these in the Solerina Hurdle at Fairyhouse next month. Willie ran three in the Solerina in 2020 so that could easily happen again.

“I’d probably side with Allegorie De Vassy or Brandy Love if I had to pick but Dinoblue could be really good too. I’d wait to see them all again and bet closer to the time.”
