Nouveau Moulin landed two bumpers here in March, both on heavy ground, so she should be at home in today's conditions for her hurdling debut. KYMIN'S WAY made good progress to land a Gowran bumper in February and did very well on her hurdling debut behind The Cookie Jar at Thurles on Sunday. She can improve again and take this. Romantic Fashion is well regarded and looked a fair prospect when landing a bumper here last month and she has all the attributes to make a successful hurdler. Fair Funny appeared to find 2m4f at Clonmel just taxing her stamina so this should prove the ideal trip.
