Cillian's Return and PATSIO arrive here with penalties for victories in bumpers. Both had been building up to their first successes and have more to offer now tackling hurdles and it's the latter who just gets the vote after his impressive victory at Limerick. Of those with hurdling experience, only Borussia has shown any kind of ability and she's out of form so it could be the former Clive Brittain-trained newcomer Muzhill who provides the main threat, though dual Flat winner Poetic Lord is the type Dessie Hughes' does well with.
