ZUZKA looks the one to be on here despite failing to land the odds at Kilbeggan last month. She ran well when second over 2m here earlier and already has a win to her name over this trip at Sligo. Missunited is interesting as she's been in cracking form on the Flat, winning twice, since scoring at Listowel in June but the likes of Free To Dream, Landero and Rodriguez probably have a bit to find on these terms and Beef To The Heels has disappointed lately. Six Stone Ned returns from a break, as does chaser Saddlers Storm, but Run 'N' Jump can only improve on her debut victory at Cork and gets all the allowances.
