Verdict

LADY OLWYN has struck form at the right time and though last week's victory at Sligo was over hurdles she had earlier run Forever Gold close over fences at Roscommon and can gain her first success over the bigger obstacles. Thepartysover has won four times over timber but has yet to get on the scoresheet over fences and may be a few pounds high while Good Egg's jumping has let him down on too many occasions. Imperial Joey would have a decent chance on the form he showed when scoring here last month though prospective punters would need to forgive a poor subsequent run at Killarney. Dual hurdles winner Shesonlyahorse has shown a glimmer of ability over fences and couldn't get much lower in the weights.
