Forecast

Hollymount Holly (5/6), Notawordofalie (9/2), Born In Borris (11/2), Little River Bay (8/1), Whoopsey (9/1), Marilyn Monroe (20/1), China Flower (25/1), Akardashian (25/1), Just Tara (33/1), Kayf Sera Sera (40/1), Cucumber Gin (66/1), Mossy Glen (100/1), Mrs Trout (150/1), Blazing Destiny (200/1), Himemiya (200/1)

Verdict
The Henry Daly-trained WHOOPSEY represents a stable with a 40% strike-rate (4/10) in the last fortnight and she is taken to make a winning seasonal and hurdling debut in this opening mares' novices' hurdle. The selection showed ability on good-to-soft ground when debuting last March and she can get the better of Hollymount Holly who drops in grade on her hurdling debut having contested a Listed bumper last time. Born In Borris won a point-to-point earlier this year and she can take third on her Rules debut.
  1. Whoopsey
  2. Hollymount Holly
