RAYDARI, who has never won over hurdles, has been in fine form on the level and if transferring that improvement to hurdling would look a good bet here so has to be the selection. Real Appeal, runner-up on soft ground at Clonmel last month, didn't appear to handle the quicker going when strongly fancied at Wexford last time. Littletown Lass has never won on a fast surface and though Jack The Hat's only victory came on good to firm ground it was over a longer trip. Sean Og Katy ran her best race to date at Down Royal last time and with trip and going in her favour she can go close.
