Vole Au Vent followed an excellent debut effort behind Moonlight Boy at this track with a poor run in a much better race at Punchestown. Winning bumper Well Tuned looked one-paced at Cork but Circe's Island has to be on the short-list after a very fair effort behind a couple of strong rivals at Navan where the rest were beaten a long way. CLOUDY ROCK is well regarded having won a point-to-point and gaining an impressive bumper success at Tramore. She looks one to follow over hurdles and can make a successful start.
