Verdict

PRETTY LITTLE LIAR was successful at Stratford earlier this year and she can have more success on her return to hurdles. She should be fit after her run on the Flat recently, while she is best suited to this distance. Knockanora Lady proved she can be competitive two starts back when she was third in a big runner field at Thurles so expect a strong challenge from the mare, while Johnny Sue should fare much better than his latest effort at Thurles over this shorter trip.
  1. Pretty Little Liar
