Verdict

AVONDHU LADY should be up to this as she has been going very well over fences and connections are taking advantage of a much lower mark over hurdles. Sherika is better handicapped over fences and faces a stiff task but Robert Tyner does well here so Girl In Blue is one to note despite her long absence as she was in very good form here in the Spring. Serra Nova is consistent but rarely wins yet is still on her highest ever mark after another good run behind Hold Em Cowboy at Navan. Definite Elegance hails from a yard going well though she didn't appear to enjoy heavy ground at Limerick last week.
