Forecast

Good Thyne Tara (4/11), White Lilac (6/1), Pahaska (7/1), Fintara (9/1), Loose Ends (14/1), Like An Open Book (22/1), Marienstar (25/1), Bluegrass Princess (33/1), Urban Classic (33/1), Ballytier Princess (66/1), Shes Flat Tothemat (66/1), Avondhu Pearl (66/1), Daisy Chicks (100/1), Nancys Icon (100/1), Silver Planeur (100/1), Miss Mcilroy (100/1), Caoimhe Diva (100/1), Maisy Belle (100/1), Our Pocket Rocket (100/1)

Verdict

Pahaska's trainer won this a year ago and she looks sure to keep progressing after a solid run at Fairyhouse last month but preference is for stablemate LOOSE ENDS. She was swatted aside by an easy winner during an Ayr raid last month but came home clear of the remainder and can enhance her trainer's record in this contest. Good Thyne Tara hasn't been the easiest to train but she's been doing well in bumpers of late and is much-respected now on her first start over timber. Punchestown bumper winner Fintara made a decisive move a long way out to win that contest and is another for the shortlist on hurdles bow. White Lilac is worth a market check on her first start for a trainer in superb form given she won her sole point-to-point in good style. 1. Loose Ends 2. Good Thyne Tara 3. White Lilac
