Last year was the first time this had been run for mares' only and Willie Mullins won it with Royal Moll. The champion trainer saddles the newcomer LYRICAL THEATRE this time and in what looks a poor event the half-sister to the useful Bright New Dawn should make a successful start. Stay Tunes ran a fair race over hurdles at Downpatrick and makes her bumper debut and though Miss Dinamic was well beaten on her debut at Fairyhouse in December she will have benefited from the experience and looks the main danger. Premier Style is bred for the job and could prove best of the remainder.
