This is a very low grade affair for horses who had not won before this season. In fact that only one to have won a race of any description recently is Pairc Na Leasa, who won a point-to-point at Affane last month. Sterling Stuff hasn't shown much over fences but would have a chance on his second over timber at Ballinrobe in April. Carrow Queen landed a bumper on that latter track in May but has been well beaten over timber and though Indubitably produced two strong efforts in the spring his later runs in the UK have been poor and he's still a maiden after 24 starts over hurdles. MILESTONE MISS has dropped 10lb in the ratings since the start of the year and has been in good enough form to take this. She didn't get far at Gowran last time but was well supported and compensation awaits.
