Verdict

Daisy's Gift is the unknown quantity here having won a Thurles bumper very easily last February and not being seen subsequently. That lack of a run is rarely a problem for one of Willie Mullins' but she has a stiff task on her hurdling debut and BEACH OF FALESA may have her measure. Aidan O'Brien's mare hasn't shown too much in a couple of starts over timber but she did well on the Flat and will have been given plenty of schooling since her latest start at Leopardstown in December. Ningbo Express was rated a long way behind her on the level but has shown much improved form over timber and chased home the selection's stablemate Plinth at Ballinrobe last month. Winning bumper Elsie has been a bit hit and miss over hurdles but she ran very well behind Fourni here last month and fourth-placed Cape Glory could give the form a boost earlier. Molly Connors has potential and will find a race sooner rather than later judged on her recent run at Cork.
