Good effort in finishing runner-up at Limerick (2m2f, good) in July last year. Cheekpieces worn for the first time that day retained when finishing mid-division on return to action. Worth a check in the market.

24 race maiden who was returning from a break when finishing a good third off this mark over C&D a month ago. Similar underfoot conditions forecast and one to note in this contest.

Ran out at the first at Limerick last time out and had struggled in three previous starts since returning from a break. Probably best watched at present.

18 race maiden has finished fifth on both starts this season. First of those came on good ground over C&D and likely needs to improve if he's to break his maiden at the 19th time of asking.

Successful twice on the AW but beaten 35L over C&D a month ago when making his seasonal debut and others hold stronger claims.

Betting

Forecast

Make My Heart Fly (6/4), Cock A Doodle Doo (11/4), Blue Skimmer (10/3), Global Racing (10/3), Lleyton (9/2), Ciaoifsin (11/2), Muroor (8/1), Maighnealta (10/1), Lusis Naturea (12/1), Reddot Dancer (25/1), Humps And Bumps (25/1)

Verdict

MAKE MY HEART FLY impressed when winning at Perth last time out and she can follow up by taking this handicap hurdle. The step up in trip shouldn't inconvenience and she can see off her rivals here while second place can go to Blue Skimmer who was placed here last month. Recent Sligo winner Cock A Doodle Doo can take third on handicap bow.
