Missunited has won twice over hurdles and twice on the Flat since the start of June and still appears to be improving. She can get the better of Harrison's Cave in receipt of 5lb as Aidan O'Brien's colt has struggled to get his head in front this year, though was fifth in the Chester Cup in May and placed at Royal Ascot in June. Saint Gervais finished ahead of him over a longer trip at Killarney last time, however, but there should also be a lot more to come from TARLA who has won five times over hurdles and landed the odds in a Roscommon maiden over 1m2f in July. She gets the nod with useful jumpers Dancing Tornado and Shinrock Paddy probably best of the rest.
