Verdict

Some very disappointing types here but it's time CHASING SHADOWS was winning and she won't get many better opportunities. Dessie Hughes' mare began her hurdling career in very good style but hasn't made the expected progress though her overall form just about gives her the edge over Ross Bay. She's another who has gone backwards after looking a fair prospect though any further rain will increase her chances. Shesonlyahorse has been placed twice in a total of 17 career starts but shouldn't be dismissed after a better run in a Tipperary handicap last time, though winning point-to-pointer Tukawhile probably needs further.
