This is virtually a rerun of a similar event at Fairyhouse a fortnight ago when FLYING WINDSOR, Dog Barrel Hill, Alright Benny and Western Island fought out a tremendous battle. All had their chances but the winner kept pulling out more and with another furlong to travel she's taken to complete the double. Miss Palm, a winning point-to-pointer and hurdler, hasn't shown much in three starts over regulation fences while Foritsa may find this on the short side. Preswell Lad has an absence to overcome but he's capable of a big run from a mark just 4lb higher than when scoring at Tramore in January.
