Some promising types here but stablemates GLENS MELODY and Tasitiocht look the pair to concentrate on with the vote going to the former. She has a penalty for landing a Listed contest in comfortable style at Leopardstown and a Cheltenham entry suggests she is considered just the better of the Willie Mullins pair at present. Her stablemate is progressing really nicely and though not far in front of Carries Darling at Wexford last time the 2m trip would have been too short. Byerley Babe made a couple of mistakes when runner-up at Punchestown but like Limerick winner Toye Native she'll need to make further improvement and Lough Roe Lady has been well beaten in a couple of handicaps.
