Dantes Firth has some smart form in bumpers to her credit though she's penalised for her victory here in March. Izabelle Amie also has extra for her success over 2m4f at Limerick, though she never showed on her debut over hurdles at Gowran in September. Kymin's Way had been threatening to win before doing so on heavy ground at Gowran and she should make a hurdler. Cork handler Michael Winters has done well this season and anything he runs from point-to-points has to be respected so recent Affane winner Missed Cloud is one to keep an eye on. THE COOKIE JAR looks vulnerable to an improver but her third place behind Gambling Girl in a Down Royal Grade 3 last month is comfortably the best form on offer and she should win this.
