CAILIN ANNAMH won a Grade 3 over hurdles at Punchestown in October, her fourth victory in a row. She's come up short twice in good company this spring but wasn't disgraced on either occasion and is the one to beat in this if jumping adequately. Pageboy has shown promise in both starts over fences and should be winning soon while Kashline's run behind Operating at Cork, when Dushybeag was behind, has worked out well though this will be his eighth start over the larger obstacles. Stoney is improving but Busty Brown may be better for the experience.
