Verdict

BRACKA LILY is on a good mark and was running well over hurdles prior to her chasing debut, so she receives the vote. Allora Yeats, an improver on the Flat this year, has been given a real chance by the handicapper on her return to this sphere, but does need to prove her stamina for this longer trip. Blue Markie also enters calculations following a good third on his handicap debut at Navan.

  1. BRACKA LILY (IRE)
