Princess Leya scored at Cork in November before finishing mid-division in a Listed contest when favourite at Navan. She'll find this less daunting and it will be a surprise if she's not in the frame. Kayf Hampshire came here for her debut and looked impressive in beating Whisper Rock but didn't perform as well under a penalty at Fairyhouse. Silverpockets has alternated between bumpers and hurdles since landing a Clonmel bumper a year ago but doesn't look to have made progress. BELL WALKS DAY is a full sister to Time For Rupert and a half-sister to several other winners. She's handed the vote to make a successful debut though the betting will give a better guide.
