CAILIN ANNAMH, second in a Listed bumper at Aintree in April having won here earlier, would probably have scored on her hurdling debut at Down Royal had she not blundered through the last. Compensation awaits here as most of her likely market rivals are a bit more exposed. Dominetta Vitali has a chance but has been chasing lately while Pollywollydoodle was just starting to close when brought down here last month. Ellaway Rose and Good As Gold look best of the others with experience, though the former was well behind Silverpockets in a Clonmel bumper in March and Myblueeyedgril also brings winner bumper form into the contest.
