Verdict

Pretty Happy has won once in 35 starts over hurdles and has gone back up in the weights after several good performances. It will be a surprise if she's not competitive, however, but conceding lumps of weight to WORLD CITIZEN, who came alight under Jody McGarvey at Downpatrick last time where positive riding tactics had the desired effect, may prove beyond her. Dessie McDonagh's mare can follow up though Underthefloorboards could prove a threat after a very good run over a slightly longer trip at Navan last time. Maduma ran poorly last time after a very good effort at Wexford, though that was on fast ground.
