Way Up In The Air was taking on more than she could handle in a very tough Leopardstown handicap the last time she ran over hurdles but has since scored impressively over fences at Thurles. Beluckyagain was an odds-on chance for her debut over timber at Fairyhouse and won nicely despite some novicey mistakes. She's progressing well but CAOIMHE'S DELIGHT has improved so much over fences recently that if she transfers that progress to hurdles she'll take all the beating. Our Katie needs a thorough test of stamina and her latest run behind Perfect Gentleman at Clonmel was her best to date while Feenakilmeedy has always had a big reputation and was very impressive over the course and distance a couple of weeks ago.
