Glibin has returned from jumping fences in very good heart and battled on stoutly to land a handicap at Listowel. Twin Plan was in superb form earlier this year and was by no means disgraced under a big weight at the Galway Festival where she wasn't far behind the prolific Busted Tycoon. CAILIN ANNAMH has been in superb form and jumped her rivals silly at Kilbeggan for what was her best effort to date. She faces a stiffer task here but should be up to it though Jennies Jewel is a big threat. She was mainly involved in high-quality events last season after landing a maiden at Naas and a recent run on the Flat will have put her straight.
