TELLHERIMNOTHERE has been running very well in defeat and there was certainly no disgrace in her second place behind Glibin at Thurles last time. She will have no problems with the longer trip and can get off the mark. Winning point-to-pointer Castlerock Rose needs a thorough test of stamina and was suited by 2m5f here last time and Lisrose, another who has been successful between the flags, has run her best races over further. Mini Vic makes her debut over timber after her bumper success at Tramore and is bred for the job as is Thynetocatcher, who had the massive bonus of landing a Listed bumper at Navan in November. Sonata D'Amour will have come on for her opening run over timber here and is another to consider in an open looking contest.
