Verdict

Il Fenomeno hasn't really hit the heights predicted after his Grade 3 novice hurdle victory two years ago and has only won once subsequently. Bridgets Pet ran very well on his last two starts at Fairyhouse and at the Cheltenham Festival but is more likely to be sent chasing again soon. Akinspirit last ran over hurdles in August of last year when he landed a handicap over the course and distance but he's been busy on the Flat this summer. UPSIE has to concede weight all round on her return from a break and she won't find this easy but she remains unbeaten in four starts here and in France and this should be number five.
