This has been transferred from yesterday's abandoned meeting and conditions will be very testing. TARLA pulled up when strongly fancied on the Flat at Listowel last month so there has to be some concerns though her hurdling form since arriving as a winner in France has suggested she could be out of the top drawer. She looks the obvious one to be on here receiving weight from Mae's Choice, a Grade 3 winner on heavy ground here in April, and Burn And Turn, well behind that day but in much better form subsequently. Madame Mado will have needed last week's run at Tramore though she'll probably have to find a bit more to match the principals.
