Verdict

Lady Olwyn is a front-runner who has been finding it difficult to get home so today's heavy ground won't be in her favour. Eirland showed enough promise on his opening run at Fairyhouse at the end of last month to suggest he may do best of those with bumper experience but winning point-to-pointers Flemenstar and Rathnaroughy have long absences to overcome. Lord Gale is certain to attract support from the Willie Mullins' followers but he doesn't have a typical bumper pedigree and a chance is taken with fellow newcomer GARRYNCURRA, the fifth foal of a mare who scored over 1m4f and has already produced four winners.
