QUEEN OF THE HILL and Mikey O'Connor look a winning combination. Tom Cooper's mare followed a good run between the flags in March with a narrow defeat by Izabelle Amie at Limerick on Sunday and with that experience under her belt can go one better. Samantha Jones, who finished fourth, looks held but Wild Friday looks a big threat as she was making her racecourse debut when an excellent second to Mister Nibbles at Down Royal last month and is certain to have come on for the run. Shinrock Pearl is bred to be a staying chaser so it was no surprise that she started favourite for a point-to-point at Inchydoney in May and though she couldn't manage to land the spoils she'll know more today and her yard do particularly well with similar types. Bobbina started off in a hurdle at Down Royal and she ran well enough to suggest she can make her presence felt here.
