Robert Tyner's horses continue in outstanding form and Who Let De Dogsout, a recent dual hurdles winner, has the pedigree to do just as well over fences. Winning point-to-pointer Springbelle is another who has been biding her time over hurdles and her recent form suggests she'll go well on her chasing debut while Killtilane Rose has been coming up against some decent opposition though that could be the case again here. Annie Oakley has looked a bit one-paced in her two starts over fences but this dual hurdles winner has some quality about her and she should get into the frame though the vote goes to ROISIN DUBH. Philip Byrne's mare was given a nice ride by Denis Hogan when landing a handicap hurdle at Clonmel and her two earlier runs were boosted by the subsequent form of the winners so she arrives in cracking form for her chasing debut and can complete a double.
