This features the much -anticipated chasing debut of DRESSEDTOTHENINES. Eddie Harty's mare completed a hat-trick over hurdles in the spring culminating in a tremendous victory over Zaidpour in a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse in April. She'll need further than this in time but her class should see her through. Speckled Wood is a worthy opponent and is also owned by JP McManus being out of his brilliant mare Like-A-Butterfly. She didn't have the same level of form over timber but was very progressive and will love the soft ground. Civena, another making her chasing bow, is a point-to-point winner and did very well over hurdles though she's another likely to need a longer trip. Tony Martin's Leahs Melody, a winner between the flags at Loughanmore in April, is one to keep an eye on for the future.
