A fascinating opener with MASONS DAUGHTER of particular interest on his first start for Willie Mullins and debut over hurdles. Winner of a bumper last year, she clearly possesses plenty of ability and has the scope for the considerable improvement, similarly Champayne Lady, a good second over this C&D last time and sure to be in there pitching again. Moonlight Escape has been knocking hard on the door of late and completes a very strong shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Masons Daughter 2nd Champayne Lady 3rd Moonlight Escape

Ardmillan turned in another solid effort when finishing second over fences at Down Royal last month and he shouldn't be inconvenienced by the return to hurdles. BEE A BENEFICIARY is just preferred, though, as she went down all guns blazing when only narrowly touched off at Punchestown and looks to have more to offer in handicap company. Pat's Oscar was behind the selection last time but could pick up some place money today.
Prediction : 1st Bee A Beneficiary 2nd Ardmillan 3rd Pats Oscar

FORCE OF FORCES made an encouraging first start for Willie Mullins when finishing fourth at Thurles last month and with the promise of plenty more to come, he looks worth siding with in this moderate affair. Curious Times hinted at better to come in a bumper here last time but his hurdles form to date is modest, while Ask Heather didn't shape too badly at Punchestown and might be capable of getting involved.
Prediction : 1st Force Of Forces 2nd Curious Times 3rd Ask Heather

QUEEN KHALEESI was touched off by under a length over the extended 2m7f at Thurles when last sighted and wouldn't need to find much improvement in order to gain compensation off the same mark over this slightly shorter trip. Itsallhappening took a step in the right direction when fourth at Fairyhouse last time and has place possibilities, likewise Brosna George, who drops in grade and steps up in trip after finishing down the field at Naas.
Prediction : 1st Queen Khaleesi 2nd Itsallhappening 3rd Brosna George

BOLD SKY was last seen routing the opposition between the flags last month and the mare has since switched stables to the Cullentra House maestro Gordon Elliott. That point-to-point spin should have him spot on for this outing and a repeat of her success that day could be achieved here. Three Kings would have finished in the mix if staying on his feet last time and is considered, while Coherent appears the best of Philip Rothwell's pair of runners.
Prediction : 1st Bold Sky 2nd Three Kings 3rd Coherent

Flemenstorm clearly likes the venue, having won and finished runner-up over hurdles here in past visits, and he makes plenty of appeal on his return over the larger obstacles, while veteran performer Mister First has a definite chance off 2lb lower than when fourth at Down Royal. The vote, however, goes to handicap debutant NICOLE'S MILAN. He improved massively from his first to second start when runner-up behind subsequent winner Goodthynemilan at Punchestown and this mark of 102 is very attractive based on that effort.
Prediction : 1st Nicoles Milan 2nd Flemenstorm 3rd Mister First

The only horse to beat TIMEWAITSFORNOONE in three starts between the flags was recent Listed hurdles winner Hardline and he appears to hold rock-solid claims on his first start under Rules. Sizingdowntherhine was only beaten half a length on his sole outing in this sphere and he warrants plenty of respect despite a couple of disappointing efforts in point-to-point events since. Allannahs Gold, a recent point-to-point winner partnered by Irish Gold Cup-winning jockey Derek O'Connor, and Follow The Moon, second behind the useful Burning Ambition at Limerick in December, are others to note.
Prediction : 1st Timewaitsfornoone 2nd Sizingdowntherhine 3rd Allannahs Gold
