Fernhurst Lad is better known as a chaser and has only been dropped 1lb despite being beaten a long way over hurdles at Fairyhouse two weeks ago. Mojito Royale had been running well on the Flat before returning to hurdles and running Sizing Australia close over the course and distance last month when Tynaghs Trooper was a neck behind. The latter ran poorly subsequently though that didn't look his form and there should be little between the pair again. Isobella Blue completed a double in the summer of 2011 and is on a very fair mark if near her best after a long absence but TIPPED UP HARRY looks the one to be on. Denise Foster's charge had been chasing before finishing a close third behind Billybuster here last month and with a course and distance success to his credit he's obviously at home on this track. Wilde Sapphire makes her handicap debut after showing her first sign of ability in a Clonmel maiden and has to be respected from her lowly spot in the weights.
