Most of these are jumpers including Redera, who had an engagement at Navan last night. False Economy won over timber here in April and won on the level at Listowel a couple of weeks ago while Headford Flyer has been in winning form on the Flat and over fences. In A Nutshell is still only five and has plenty of decent form over hurdles so he's one to keep an eye on in the betting but Dearest Girl is probably flattered by her run behind False Economy at Listowel. Ballyhaunis has returned to hurdling after a very long break but is very well handicapped on the Flat if able to recapture his form though it's one at the other end of the weights, SKY PILOT, who should prove difficult to beat as he was in fine form during March, scoring at Dundalk and twice finishing runner-up, which suggests he can take this.
