In depth

Verdict

A big field here though all eyes will be on ANNIE POWER as she makes her hurdling debut. Willie Mullins' filly remains unbeaten after three bumpers starts and though she hasn't had a great deal to do she's obviously useful and has been found a nice opportunity. Dubh Go Leir will ensure she has a test as she's been going well and ran a fine race when runner-up over the C&D three weeks ago while Andunowhat produced her best run to date when runner-up to the long odds-on Champagne Agent in a huge field at Cork a couple of weeks ago. Diamond Gesture may do best of the remainder on her hurdling debut as she's shown up nicely in bumpers.
