Jeremy's Girl has been running well but is still 10lb higher than when gaining her latest success at Naas in July. She had Balrath Hope behind at Navan last time though the latter was impeded at a crucial stage and there shouldn't be much in it this time. CHEVAL ROUGE could only finish sixth that day but her rider appeared to misjudge the pace as she was never in contention before staying on. She should get the strong gallop she needs here and is given the verdict in a tight handicap. Unaccompanied is certain to come in for support as she's been competing at a much higher level this season. Her last two runs have been over 1m6f and, as a Grade 1 winner over hurdles, she may just find this on the short side.
