CAILIN ANNAMH will be a very smart performer when getting her jumping act together as she's made plenty of mistakes in her races to date but still managed to win comfortably. She can continue to make progress and take this though any rain would aid the chance of Goodoldhonkytonk, who looked suited by soft ground when scoring at Clonmel. Ourbeautifuldream has no problems with fast going as she demonstrated at Roscommon where she made supporters of the short-priced Benemeade sweat and she's closely matched with Stay In My Heart, who wasn't far behind that same winner at Wexford last month.
