Way Up In The Air, a winning bumper and progressive hurdler, was receiving the mares' allowance when just touched off by Jim Will Fix It on her chasing bow at Punchestown. Backinthere was in fine form earlier this year over timber and made a bright start over fences in October beating Back In A Tic by just over a length. She couldn't quite cope with Ballinahow Lady in a similar race to this at Clonmel, where the favourite Caoime's Delight ran so poorly it was thought something was amiss. DRESSEDTOTHENINES was easily the best of these over hurdles and beat Zaidpour in a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse in April. She hasn't jumped well in her two starts to date over fences though she could hardly be expected to have beaten Don Cossack over 2m6f on heavy ground at Galway and hopefully can improve enough to land what looks a competitive affair.
