Verdict

Silk And Sand is carrying a penalty for her bumper victory at Thurles in November and was put in her place when tackling a Listed bumper at Navan a couple of weeks later. Miss Chevious Girl showed a bit of potential last year and will be better for a run in a Downpatrick handicap last month while winning point-to-pointer KALETTO only succumbed close home over this trip at Wexford on her hurdling debut. The latter gets the nod as she may have more scope than the consistent Amor Verdadero, whose best run came over the minimum trip.
