Loch Ard Lady, successful between the flags and third in a bumper at Listowel last month, would have to go on the short-list if getting a run from her reserve spot. Artful Artist was fourth on his hurdling debut over track and trip while Wilde Sapphire might be improving with experience. But it's likely CREADAN MIST will step up on what he's shown so far now tackling hurdles so we'll give Pat Flynn's charge a tentative vote with Danny Benson claiming a valuable 7lb.
