Verdict

Winning point-to-pointer and bumper Carrigeen Lonicera has been very highly tried over fences and this should be more her class. Willie Mullins' Chiltern Hills has produced nothing in her two starts over fences but Hidden Horizons scored over 3m over hurdles and should appreciate stepping up to this trip on her third start over fences. ICHEY FEET looked like a real staying type when runner-up to the promising Flaming Dawn over hurdles at Tramore and has the credentials to do well over the bigger obstacles so gets the nod in a tricky contest. Sugar Bullet has plenty of experience over fences but doesn't appear to have improved and Milestone Miss is still a maiden over hurdles after 15 starts.
