LEITZEL ran a nice race on her hurdling debut, despite never troubling the winner, and can take a step forward here. The Teofilo filly stayed on into second behind easy winner Pinot Gris at Bellewstown last month and with that experience under her belt she looks up to winning a race of this standard. Love Me also showed some promise when fourth on her hurdling debut at Limerick last month and is an obvious danger. African Lady showed a bit more when fifth at Downpatrick last time and may be able to get into the places now.
Prediction : 1st Leitzel 2nd Love Me 3rd African Lady

This looks like a nice opportunity for PIGEON HOUSE. The Saxon Warrior gelding won a competitive handicap hurdle at Punchestown before a solid run on the Flat at Gowran Park last time. He is second top-rated here off his mark of 126. Cossack Chach is rated a pound superior but comes here having pulled up at Punchestown earlier in the month. He has a bit to prove after that poor showing. Pinot Gris, an easy winner at Bellewstown last time, could prove a bigger danger despite having a few pounds to find on official ratings.
Prediction : 1st Pigeon House 2nd Pinot Gris 3rd Cossack Chach

KILKEE BAY bumped into one here three weeks ago when chasing home easy winner Supersundae and this looks a winnable opportunity now. The Ocovango gelding had shaped with promise when fourth in a decent maiden hurdle at Punchestown previously and should be up to landing a summer contest now. Bridgehead has an absence to overcome but has been placed in all three of his runs over timber and should be a big player if fit and ready on his return. Eoin's Charm ran well when fourth on his debut here last month and should improve from that. He is another leading contender.
Prediction : 1st Kilkee Bay 2nd Bridgehead 3rd Eoins Charm

JE T'AI PORTE was a cosy winner over fences here three weeks ago and runs off a half-stone lower mark now back over timber. The versatile Footstepsinthesand mare bounced out and made all here last time and front-running is often a big plus around here. Jolie Coeur Allen ran well at Bellewstown on her handicap debut and could get involved again but is a bit of a weak finisher. Flidais has been runner-up on her last couple of outings, including over further here last month. She's another one for the shortlist in a race where plenty can be given chances.
Prediction : 1st Je Tai Porte 2nd Jolie Coeur Allen 3rd Flidais

Better ground seemed to make a big difference to TELL US THIS at Down Royal earlier in the month, where he won but was subsequently disqualified. The Westerner gelding still looked plenty green then, edging right in the closing stages and hampering Benjis Benefit. He runs off a 6lb higher mark now and may be able to gain compensation after losing the race on appeal. Luimneach returns from an absence but could play a big part on his seasonal debut. The Fame And Glory gelding has dropped 3lb since last being seen at Fairyhouse in April 2023 and this nice ground should play to his strengths. Dreamz ran a big race on her last visit here and is another that has to come into calculations.
Prediction : 1st Tell Us This 2nd Luimneach 3rd Dreamz

I AM SPIDER MAN stayed on well when fourth at Downpatrick last time and looks capable of winning one of these back in the lowest grade. The Walk In The Park gelding remains on the same mark of 94 and should be capable of striking off that if things fall his way. Ask Cillian ran well at a big price here three weeks ago when chasing home Whatyouwant and if she can repeat that showing she'd be a big player despite a 3lb rise. Sineads Fancy is another who was placed at fancy odds here three weeks ago and also has to be considered.
Prediction : 1st I Am Spider Man 2nd Ask Cillian 3rd Sineads Fancy

IT'S TIME AGAIN has hit the crossbar on her last couple of visits here and may be able to gain a deserved win now. The Shirocco mare has won twice here in the past and ran well on her two outings this season, most recently when third to Whatyouwant three weeks ago. The winner turns out again here having been fifth at Clonmel since and is now 6lb worse off. Roscomroe also has recent course form having been runner-up at a massive price here three weeks ago. The Getaway gelding only went up a pound and is a big player if he can repeat that showing.
Prediction : 1st Its Time Again 2nd Whatyouwant 3rd Roscomroe

Willie Mullins is hard to oppose in bumpers and SOIR DE GARDE may be able to make a winning debut here. The Kapgarde gelding has a big pedigree being a half-brother to one of the stable's stars, in State Man. Gers Gigi ran well when third on her debut here three weeks ago and is entitled to improve from that experience. With the course form under her belt she should be a big player again. I Am Mimi was mid-division in a festival bumper at Punchestown earlier in the month having been a good second at the Kildare course on debut last November. He has shown enough to be a contender now.
Prediction : 1st Soir De Garde 2nd Gers Gigi 3rd I Am Mimi
