John Kiely and Derek O'Connor are a winning combination so Henry's Girl, who made a very encouraging debut behind subsequent dual hurdles winner Ange Balafre at Roscommon, must be on the shortlist. However, MOLLY CONNORS has to be the pick as though she couldn't handle the top-class Briar Hill here in November the third has won since and the form looks solid. Behana wasn't far behind the useful Shesafoxylady at Punchestown in October but that was on good ground and she didn't handle softer conditions at Cork later. Autumn Shades started odds-on for a point-to-point at Askeaton in February and duly obliged so she's obviously well-regarded while there are several interesting newcomers to keep an eye on with Bell Of The Ball possibly the best of them at this stage.
