It's very rare to see one of Willie Mullins' right at the bottom of a moderate handicap but Away We Go has shown little since making a debut success for the yard in October. The veteran Slew Charm has won once over hurdles in 27 starts but has some strong form and would have to be considered if anywhere near his best. OUR GIRL SALLEY has been in very good heart over fences despite her four seconds and has a Grade 3 to her credit over hurdles. She arrives on a fair mark and looks the one to beat though Prince Rudi is in very good heart at present having beaten a huge field over 3m at Leopardstown. Mackeys Forge hasn't run over timber for a long time and isn't as well handicapped as over the bigger obstacles but the opposite is the case for Dazzling Susie, who won twice over fences last summer and is a massive 15lb better in over hurdles.
