811-10OR: 157D
5/1

Won for the fourth time over hurdles when landing the Grade 2 Lismullen hurdle over 2m4f on soft to heavy ground beating Apple's Jade over 9L. Another bold bid likely.

12/1

Winner of five of his 15 starts over hurdles including a 12L demolition of a six-runner field in a Grade 3 contest over 2m in October. Plenty to prove stepping up in grade and trip.

33/1

Running with credit in defeat both over hurdles and the larger obstacles last season in graded company. Not seen since finishing behind Unowhatimeanharry in the Grade 1 Stayers hurdle at Punchestown in May. Looks a tall order.

811-10OR: 160BF
11/1

Top class stayer, came back from an absence to land the Stayers Hurdle at Cheltenham before a gallant second in the Grade 1 Stayers hurdle at Punchestown when last seen in action in the spring of 2018. Not to be underestimated.

5/2

Below-par effort when finishing over 9L behind Bacardys in the Grade 2 Lismullen hurdle at Navan in a race she had won the previous two years. Needs to bounce back to land this contest for the fourth year running.

9/10

Won a Thurles Listed contest in December last year, going on to win at Grade 3 level before a facile victory in the Grade 1 Mares' novice hurdle over C&D in the spring. Won easily on seasonal debut here. Leading player.

Betting

Forecast

Honeysuckle (9/10), Apple's Jade (5/2), Bacardys (5/1), Penhill (11/1), Davids Charm (12/1), Killultagh Vic (33/1)

Verdict

The fast progressing HONEYSUCKLE for the Henry De Bromhead yard can land the spoils to win her second Grade 1 contest following on from her win over C&D in the Spring. The five-year-old had a gentle seasonal introduction winning by 11L and can hold off the attentions of Apple's Jade as the Gordon Elliott-trained mare attempts to repair her tarnished reputation and win this contest for the fourth year in a row. The Willie Mullins yard last won this race in 2015 with Arctic Fire and his pair, Barcardys and Penhill should not be taken lightly.
