DARE TO DOUBT is another nice prospect for Willie Mullins and this dual bumper winner, who beat all bar Big Time Billy in a Listed bumper at Aintree on her final start last term, can make a winning debut over timber. Model County Lass, three times a winner between the flags, made a winning debut in a bumper in April and has been unfortunate not to have lost her maiden tag over timber. She looks a big threat while another point-to-point winner, Knockraha Lad, showed his appreciation for decent ground and today's trip with a better effort at Wexford last time. Waltzing Tornado has run the occasional decent race but the fact that he's still a maiden after 17 career starts is off-putting.
