This is probably one for the market watchers though Willie Mullins' newcomer ROBINA MAI, who is by the same sire as Sir Des Champs and Quevega, is certain to come in for support and could be good enough. Shuilamach hasn't done much wrong and likes heavy conditions while Silverpockets was only just behind her at Gowran last time so enters the equation. Young Ambition was a long way back in that latter race but that wasn't her form while Why Ask Me finished a very close runner-up to subsequent hurdles winner Suntiep at Limerick in November and could be anything.
