Carrigeen Lonicera easily won a point-to-point at Killaloe in February but was beaten a long way when runner-up on her bumper debut the following month. Kymin's Way was well beaten when tackling Listed company at Navan in November but had shown plenty of promise last season and this is more her grade. Marley Exit scored between the flags at Ballydarragh last month and made a promising bumper debut at Limerick while Pumped Up Kicks makes her bumper debut after running reasonably well over hurdles at Limerick in November. BELUCKYAGAIN is likely to start a short-priced favourite despite looking more of a staying type and, given his trainer's record in these races, he's handed the vote to make a winning racecourse debut.
