Rocky Wednesday landed a similar race to this at Ballinrobe in April but has appeared reluctant in his two subsequent starts and has finished tailed off on the Flat at Navan and over hurdles at Galway. Speckled Wood started off well over timber and earned her current rating with a handicap victory at Clonmel in March. She's been chasing and gained her first success at Wexford last week. Willie Mullins complicate matters with two entries. Primroseandblue won three times over hurdles last year but hasn't shown much in two starts over fences this season. He has a professional rider on his back for the first time and that should aid his cause though SMASHING is taken to see off his stablemate. Still only a four-year-old, the recruit from France was bought for 130,000 euros after his latest effort over fences at Auteuil and, though he'll soon be back over the bigger obstacles, he's been twice runner-up in Listed company over timber and his allowance can see him home.
