The hurdles track comes into play now and DAISY'S GIFT will be a warm order for Willie Mullins and Paul Townend. An easy bumper winner at Thurles, she didn't jump well on her hurdling debut at Punchestown but that was a much better race than this with the winner having scored again. Millie Le Bach ran a fine race behind Mullins' Ask Vic at Listowel last month and holds Ballybrowney Ella on that run so she looks the main threat though winning point-to-pointer Give Her Bach has run well enough over timber to suggest she can get involved.
