A much more competitive looking bumper than usual but once again it's Willie Mullins who should hold all the aces with DANI CATALONIA. She showed her potential with a fine run behind Parramatta at Ballinrobe with Roisin Dubh behind and with progress virtually guaranteed she can go one better. Andreas Pride has been going well on ground with plenty of give and could improve on this quicker going though she has a bit to find with Ourbeautifuldream on their run here last month and Pru Dobbs' mare looks a big threat on that run. St Maxime was just behind in that latter race on this track and ran well in a stronger event at Tipperary a fortnight ago.
