Verdict

Gigginstown have purchased URTICAIRE from France after she landed five bumpers at minor tracks. She has an outstanding pedigree and, like the Mullins entry in the opener, has a Grade 1 entry. She should make a winning start as the opposition doesn't look strong. Rock High Lady showed potential in bumpers and made a promising hurdling debut at Galway but appeared to find 2m4f stretching her stamina when runner-up to The Housekeeper at Fairyhouse. Beach Of Falesa represents Aidan O'Brien and she could prove the main threat. Four times a winner on the Flat, she is rated 94 and that would normally be good enough to land a race of this nature if taking to jumping. Grandma Dotty has been in decent form at Dundalk and, with Ruby Walsh booked, she's one to keep an eye on for the future.
