TARLA will be a short-priced favourite here which is hardly surprising given her level of form. She won a Grade 3 on her chasing debut at Clonmel in November but fell in her next two starts over fences. She's had a couple of runs over timber and hopefully will have regained her confidence. There's nothing with that kind of form here though Caheronaun has done really well since turning to fences and looks the one to take advantage if the selections fails again. Our Victoria was a long way behind Tarla at Clonmel while Shabra Charity needs further.
