Willie Mullins has been taking advantage of the fillies allowance in this recently and had two of the fairer sex occupy the first two positions here twelve months ago. With that in mind, Meri Devie
, has to earn serious consideration having made short work of some highly regarded novices on her debut. The form of that race has not worked out as well as hoped and she was put in her place in a Grade One won by Mega Fortune
next time. She ran too freely that day but is clearly considered good enough by her trainer to take Mega Fortune on again as well as BAPUME
. The trio were second, third and fifth in the Triumph and have been in regular competition with each other this season. The three are closely matched with Mega Fortune coming out on top of late but arriving here on the back of a busy campaign. That tilts things in favour of BAPAUME this time who has little to find on form and who will be having just his fourth run in 12 months.
