MISS PEPPERPOT gained her first success over fences at Naas on Saturday and the assessor has raised her 4lb. She can run here under a 4lb penalty so looks well enough handicapped to double her winning tally. Hold Em Cowboy attracted good support in that event after a fair run at Punchestown but fell at the first. Andrea's Answer has dropped to a fair mark and ran her best race over fences in that Punchestown event. She's up another 2lb but still looks capable of a big run. Maca Rince had shown nothing over fences until a much improved run over 3m here last month where she had every chance at today's trip. She looks a big threat from the same mark, while Bale O'Shea is only 4lb higher than when scoring easily at Wetherby last June and has been successful over hurdles subsequently.
