Our Native Land travelled strongly for a long way at Wexford last week but could only muster the one pace when push came to shove. He may also have to settle for a place again here behind SUPER MIX. Willie Mullins' newcomer is nicely bred and shouldn't be short of speed. Gee Gee Robyn was found wanting in Listed company at Navan last month but would have a chance on her third at Punchestown in May while the market should be monitored closely regarding the chances of Dynamo Kid. Plettenburg Bay has won a couple of point-to-points recently but may not have the pace for this.
