MAYO MYSTIQUE will be at short odds to gain her first success over fences and she's impossible to oppose. Paul Rothwell's winning hurdler has been racing in strong company since turning to the bigger obstacles and the form of her second places behind Rupert at Thurles and Dare To Doubt on the same track last month is way clear of anything achieved by these opponents. Twin Plan finished around 20l behind the selection in that latter event and is unlikely to reverse the form while Fantastic Gold is only moderate over hurdles and makes her chasing debut. Play The Wing could sneak a place at a big price as she will appreciate the quicker ground and jumped a bit better at Limerick last time.
