Banjaxed Girl, a useful hurdler, has been quite highly tried over fences since joining Lady Fowler but she doesn't appear to be improving and CARRIG MILLIE can relegate her to a place here. Michael Cullen's mare won over hurdles on soft ground at Navan in March under Davy Russell and, out of a Strong Gale mare, she looks tailor-made for chasing. Oscars Business went close at Roscommon in June and may have just needed the run when fourth at Limerick last month. She makes more appeal than High Way Hunter and fencing newcomer Chasing Shadows in this.
