16:35 Tramore Tue 14 May 2019
Best over fences, so penultimate run ignored, and he was back to form when second of 7 to King's Song at Tramore (2m5f, heavy) last time under today's rider. Dangerous if getting loose in front.
Couldn't get on terms when third to King's song at Tramore when Dark Outsider was second, but appreciated stiffer test when getting up late to win at Wexford (3m1f) last time. Claims despite dropping in trip now.
C&D winner who was made favourite at Tramore last time against a trio of these, despite a lengthy absence, only to run poorly. Perhaps the run was needed more than expected, but clearly has a bit to prove after that.
Won in the mud here last term, and just behind Double Windsor when fourth to King's Song at Tramore. Re-opposes on better terms after that rival scored last time, and cheekpieces added now.
Well held on both starts in maiden chases recently, but fairly treated on form of his hurdles win at Clonmel in November. Expected to improve now handicapping in this sphere, and shortlisted.
Hit form in the autumn to score at Wexford and Sligo over 3m+, but she has lost her form as quickly as she found it, and hard to fancy on recent evidence.

Double Windsor (5/2), Thats Mypresenting (7/2), Lacken Bridge (7/2), Dontdooddson (4/1), Dark Outsider (6/1), Shanklys Dawn (12/1)
