Verdict

This will take some getting but neither trip nor going should be a problem for KILLULTAGH QUEEN. A winning bumper and hurdler, Willie Mullins' mare came up against a useful type when just touched off by Montan at Fairyhouse late last month and will be unfortunate to come up against one as good here. Bobs Display stays well and will like the conditions but she needs to brush up on her jumping which was a little hesitant when runner-up to For Bill here a month ago. Back Me Up, who finished around 12 lengths back in fifth, will have come on for the experience and should get closer but False Messenger, a winner over hurdles here, was beaten a long way and will need to do much better.
