The ladies get had a handy 7lb allowance from the colts and geldings in this maiden and MUTISKA can make that count. Eoin Doyle's mare ran a solid race at Gowran Park on her debut over hurdles and she shouldn't be wanting for match fitness having had a recent outing on the Flat at Killarney. Birzali reverts to hurdles having cut little ice over fences and he wouldn't be out of this on the pick of his form for Colm Murphy. Harpor shaped well at Thurles in April but he's failed to build upon that since. Obispo takes a substantial drop in trip, while Bunty Lawless was heavily backed at Roscommon on her most recent start though she gave the bookmakers very few moments of concern once the race got underway.
