Benemeade has a penalty by virtue of his bumper victory in March. He was beaten when odds-on for his hurdling debut over 2m then appeared to find 3m just stretching his stamina so this trip should prove ideal. But the concession of 8lb to SALTMILLS BLACKIE may prove beyond him as Henry De Bromhead's winning point-to-pointer made a promising debut over timber at Kilbeggan a month ago and will have come on for that experience. Stay In My Heart ran easily her best race to date over hurdles at Punchestown last time though she's never raced beyond the minimum trip and Dashing Lady, who was just behind, was staying on strongly so will be suited by this distance.
