Noeleens Moon did very well to get within half-a-length of Gypsy Rose at Tramore and though unable to repeat that run at Fairyhouse she will find this grade much more to her liking. Winning hurdler Chip Tea has no problems with the trip and Noel Meade tries him in blinkers for the first time after a poor recent effort at Navan. Peter Casey is strongly represented here and his FASCINATING PADDY could be the one to be on. Still a maiden, the five-year-old has definitely improved recently and though tackling the trip for the first time he's been staying on under pressure on most starts.
