Faustina Pius is comfortably the pick of these on her overall form but ran so poorly behind Musawama at Downpatrick last time that she's difficult to fancy, though it's possible an early mistake unsettled her. LOUGHDERG PRINCESS didn't show much on the Flat but should make a much better hurdler judged on her fine run behind Decade Player at Ballinrobe. With further progress likely she looks the one to be on though Stormy Oscar had some decent form before finding 2m4f too far at Roscommon. Daisyanabelle hasn't been particularly consistent but there was nothing wrong with her recent run at Clonmel and she's run well here in the past. Slow Train Coming may prove a threat as he was having his first start since last October when showing up for a long way at Clonmel last month.
