King Of Queens is a decent hurdler but lightly-raced on the Flat and has a long absence to overcome. Daliyan ran poorly over timber here last month but had been in very good form previously and that could just have been a blip. NEW REGALIA produced a frustrating run of seconds last summer before a moderate run on Polytrack. She's still a maiden but Jim Bolger will do his best to get a victory out of her and today could be her day. Liberty's Gift landed a handicap hurdle at Tipperary in October before a reasonable run at Aintree a few weeks later and hasn't been seen since. She had earlier been beaten a couple of lengths by Killourney Empress and the latter, who will love the testing ground, could provide the main threat.
