Ruby Walsh:

“Concertista is in good form and she’s had two runs over fences at Cork and Limerick in December. She’s a good filly and she was second to Black Tears in last year’s Mares Handicap at Leopardstown. She’s taking to fences very well.

“Willie has a few in here. Elimay won well at Naas earlier this month, winning by 5l. She was entitled to beat Court Maid, however, and she went off at around 1/5. Dolcita and Agusta Gold are also in there but they’re bigger prices. Agusta Gold would need to put her best foot forward and Dolcita looks to be held by Concertista in their form.

“Concertista is a low and accurate jumper but this is a competitive race. You could pick any one of a few of these here. Do I see Concertista getting any shorter before the race? No, I don’t.

“Therefore, the value lies with the likes of Put The Kettle On and Zambella. If I had to pick between the pair, I’d go with Put The Kettle On for Henry de Bromhead. She’s achieved far more than any of these mares. Her form has dipped recently but if she bounces back, she’s currently a ridiculous price.”
