Noras Fancy and Shadow Eile have stiff tasks under their penalties while Is Herself About has beaten very little in her two unbeaten runs over timber. Ceol Rua has twice finished behind Make A Track and was only caught on the line over the minimum trip at Gowran last time. She'll make a bold bid to lead all but OSCARS BUSINESS may have her measure. Robert Tyner's winning point-to-pointer easily won a Navan bumper last month and followed up in emphatic style on her hurdling bow at Limerick. This longer trip is in her favour and she looks a decent staying prospect. Dazzling Susie has been a little disappointing since her winning debut over hurdles but has had some stiff tasks and is by no means out of this.
