Jennies Jewel produced an outstanding run to land a Grade B handicap at Navan and deserves her elevation into this company. She'll ensure the two Willie Mullins entries don't have things there own way and could easily split the pair. UPSIE hardly jumped a hurdle with any fluency when retaining her unbeaten record at Cork where she almost pulled herself up. She's obviously a difficult ride by A P McCoy is here to do the steering and she can see off her stablemate Urticaire despite conceding 6lb. The latter has won six of her eight races and made an impressive start for the champion trainer at Navan where she was always travelling very comfortably.
