Millie Le Bach is an interesting entry having won a point-to-point and a bumper around this time a year ago, both on quick ground. Ultra Light ran reasonably well over the course and distance early in March then got bogged down in the Limerick mud later in the month so a return to this sort of going won't do her any harm. However, this is probably best left to SHERSHEWILL, who has been placed in four of her nine starts over timber and came up against a potentially useful winner in Un Beau Roman here last month when a couple of decent performers were behind. Vicky Miller had some fair form in bumpers and should make a hurdler but winning bumper and point-to-pointer Cheyenne Girl hasn't shown much to date over timber.
