Ashjar scored over hurdles at Tramore in May but was disappointing when tackling 1m6f at Leopardstown last time. EBADANI finished runner-up five times in succession before a reasonable run in a better race at the Curragh. He's never been beaten very far and this looks his easiest task to date so he gets the nod. The Plan Man has been in winning form over hurdles and has to be respected but Dancingwithangels has now had 24 starts and doesn't look quick enough. Fourni landed a Galway bumper before making a successful debut over hurdles on her comeback but she's been disappointing on the Flat and may find this on the short side.
