David Kelly won this last year with Railway Icon so Red Flight is one to watch out for as she showed some promise on her debut over hurdles at Ballinrobe. BLUEBERRY HILL is the form pick of those with bumper experience as he definitely improved at Killarney last month and wouldn't need much more. He gets the vote though Mags Mullins has been having a good year with her bumper horses and Intheolddays may have more to offer. Presenting Beara improved when stepped up to 2m3f at Cork so may find this on the short side.
