Appletime ran well behind Moscow Mannon at Navan when Reafadda was just behind but the latter is more likely to be suited by the longer trip. Winning bumper JENNIES JEWEL was in touch for a long way on her hurdling bow at Punchestown and only faded close home. She'll be better for that experience and is handed the vote. Futuramic was behind that day and looks held along with the remainder, who would all need to improve to get involved.
