An apparent toss-up between two friends, Gordon Elliott and Gavin Cromwell, with BALLYQUIN BAY a toss of the coin ahead of Minella Youngy. It’s hard to see anything else winning.
NEW TO PADDY POWER NEWS?
The only bumper winner in the field, OLD BILL BARLEY has to concede weight all-round but could well be up to the task in what looks an ordinary maiden. Chief dangers appear to be Itwasfate and Up And Out. The most interesting of the newcomers could be Saint Bernadette.
A C&D maiden winner in the past, SCALOR has been running well enough on the Flat of late to suggest he can have an impact back hurdling here. Pretty Little Liar has similar credentials and is respected, along with the likes of Swelltime and The Dasher Conway.
Having returned from a break to score a shade cosily at Sligo last Sunday, INNISFREE BEAUTY (nap) could be up to defying a 6lb rise here in what doesn’t look a strong race, even for the grade. Muntahez and Grinn look the two most likely dangers.

It could easily be argued that HE FITZ IN got off quite lightly with a 14lb rise for defeating some useful opponents in a novice over C&D last month. Only a 6yo, he clearly relishes a stamina test and could have more to offer. A Different World looks a solid alternative, while it would be no surprise if C&D winner Killinure Lass bounced back from a lacklustre effort at Tipperary last time.
Modest stuff. THE GREAT WHITE is a speculative pick on his seasonal return. Duchess Ravenwaves rates a pretty solid sort but does not seem all that well-in.
