ZUZKA won a couple of minor bumper events before lining up at Gowran for her hurdling debut where she ran well behind Maxim Gorky. With that under her belt she can regain the winning thread though she faces no easy task conceding lumps of weight to Daisyanabelle. Lesley Young's filly showed nothing on the Flat but has improved over hurdles and her two most recent efforts suggest she should be winning soon. Some Fiddle has gradually improved and may have been a little unlucky behind Wall Street Wally at Downpatrick on Friday. This isn't the toughest of races and she can get involved along with Music On D Waters, who will be getting plenty of weight and has one or two pieces of form that give her a chance. Strange Talk has been tailed off in two bumpers this year after a good run over timber at Leopardstown in December.
