Samantha Jones was only beaten a length on her racecourse debut here last month but that race was run at a very slow pace which is unlikely in this bigger field. SCRAPPER JACK came up against a useful performer when runner-up to Mozoltov at Thurles and she's unlikely to find one as good here so gets the vote. Kaylas Charm had looked promising on her debut last March but disappointed subsequently until a much better run behind Golden Firth at Navan last weekend. Kevin Fancy won a point at Aghabullogue earlier this month and has joined Colin Bowe along with Mrs Trair, another winner between the flags who will be better for the experience gained here last month. Lady Milano, who scored at Dromahane on New Year's Eve, is another watch out for.
