Verdict

SAOIRSE DUN has completed a hat-trick in minor company and takes on better class rivals with an 11lb rise to contend with but he's only had six starts over fences and looks capable of defying the extra burden. Come To The Party alternates between hurdles and fences and completed a double over timber in November. He can revert to fences on a lower mark and has to be considered along with De Dodger, who was having just his third start over fences when a fine runner-up to Glenquest at Punchestown after scoring over this C&D. Our Girl Lucy is extremely consistent and makes her handicap debut over the bigger obstacles after finishing runner-up in a Grade 2 novices event here last month so she has to be respected.
