Noras Fancy won a Listed race on her last start over hurdles in March and has come up against useful opposition in her three runs over fences this campaign. She should find this less demanding though once again she's meeting a bright prospect in OUR GIRL SALLEY. Pru Dobbs' mare has won seven of her 18 starts in bumpers and over hurdles including a Grade 3 at Leopardstown in December. She's a half-sister to a winning point-to-pointer so there's every chance she'll be even better over fences and gets the nod to make a winning debut. Magical Memoir may prove the main threat as she finished in front of Noras Fancy at Tramore last month and, as that was her debut over fences, she looks sure to make progress and do well over the bigger obstacles. Avondhu Lady has been disappointing so far and Leblon fell on his only start over fences.
