Verdict
Willie Mullins' MISS SAPPHIRE will not find many easier opportunities to open her account over hurdles. Her bumper victory was nothing special and she was well beaten behind the useful pair of Fayonagh and Sassy Diva next time. The ground was atrocious that day and it is interesting connections have waited for summer ground before launching her new career. Fintara looks the pick of those with hurdling form but Belle Helene may be a bigger threat. She had some good horses behind when winning her bumper with something in hand. Conditions would have been too soft on her hurdling debut and she could produce a big run at rewarding odds.
  1. Miss Sapphire
  2. Fintara
  3. Belle Helene
