Jonjo O'Neill's French import Sway has fallen in each of her last two starts and she has claims if her jumping holds up but this is likely to lie between VOLER LA VEDETTE and Quevega with preference for the former. Colm Murphy's mare showed decent form as a novice last season but has improved this term with wins at Puchestown, Down Royal and Leopardstown, earning a rating of 161 and she will be hard to beat on ideal ground conditions. Nicky Henderson's Stravinsky Dance has been well held in her last two starts and is hard to recommend, while Jessica Harrington's Zarinava has a lot more to do than when successful at Doncaster last time. Stable companion No One Tells Me is held by the selection on running at Leopardstown and of more interest may be Emma Lavelle's Easter Legend, who looks to be going the right way. The Willie Mullins-trained Quevega won this event 12 months ago and has every chance if able to reproduce the same level of form today but she disappointed in France when last seen in April and lack of a recent run is a concern so a safer option looks to be Voler La Vedette.
