Verdict

Winning point-to-pointer MAE'S CHOICE landed a Grade 3 hurdle at the Punchestown Festival and has been highly tried in her two runs this season. She makes her debut over fences here but has always looked like a chaser and can make a winning start. Galianna has a distinct Flat pedigree and won four times on the level but she's also won twice over hurdles so could make a chaser. Magical Memoir, twice a winner over timber, made a fine start over fences at Tramore last month but never showed at Clonmel on her next start and will need to do much better. Caheronaun isn't in the best of form and needs further but Carrig Millie looks a big threat. She improved with experience over hurdles and made a promising debut over the bigger obstacles when a close third to Banjaxed Girl in a similar race to this at Punchestown earlier this month.
