Verdict

It will take a good effort to beat BANJAXED GIRL, who made all and jumped really well to gain her first success over fences at Punchestown. She has a touch of quality about her and with that confidence booster under her belt is expected to go on to better things. Avondhu Lady has already won twice over fences and run well in graded company so she must be considered a threat despite her extra penalty. Madam Bovary has been progressing steadily culminating in a fine effort to land a beginners' event at Punchestown. She should make her presence felt along with Caheronaun, who may be suited by further despite a disappointing run over 2m5f at Tramore.
