Verdict

BLUE FIRE LADY showed nothing in testing conditions during the winter but it was a different matter when she encountered fast going at Downpatrick last month as she ran a cracking race to finish runner-up to Dream Home. She can take this with her low weight while Rathnaskillogue, another who has progressed since conditions turned in his favour and well enough weighted, can provide the main threat. The handicapper looks to have got to Hatton's Wood after raising him 17lbs for two Tramore victories while Money Belt has gone up 2lbs for finishing third to Jack Absolute at Limerick. Kaitlin's Fancy didn't get far at Punchestown last week but her second place there in October points to her chance here.
