Verdict

The Noel Meade-trained MISS COGNAC can add to her win at Limerick on St Stephens day to win for the second time over hurdles. The daughter of Flemensfirth is aided by the 7lb claim of jockey Eoin Walsh to offset to 10lb rise from the handicapper. Rebel Early won on her latest start over C&D last month in a soft/heavy ground handicap off a 7lb lower mark is the clear danger in this contest. The Jessica Harrington-trained Envious Editor is better than recent efforts suggest while Fakir for trainer Joseph O'Brien should not be taken lightly on handicap debut.
