SHADOW EILE, runner-up in the Grade 1 mares hurdle at Punchestown, is different class to these over timber and looks to have been found an easy task on her chasing debut though that will be reflected in her odds. Goodoldhonkytonk did well over hurdles, scoring on soft ground at Clonmel, and will have benefited from his debut over fences at Tramore where he took a keen hold before fading. Kalico Kim, a moderate hurdler, also ran at Tramore last time where she showed her first real sign of form over the bigger obstacles though found 2m6f too far.
