Verdict

AVONDHU LADY went up 10lb for landing a handicap over 2m4f at Cork but followed up from a much higher mark over fences at Naas where she had today's rival Lead Kindly Light behind. She's still very well in compared to her chase rating and will take all the beating. Tudor Fashion finally lost her maiden tag at Fairyhouse and holds Jewel Star on that run before a moderate effort in a Leopardstown handicap. Honey Bach has been highly tried on occasions but is probably still a few pounds high in the weights and though Nurse Ryan has won twice over hurdles her best form has been on ground much quicker than this. Roisin Dubh hasn't run since September and is another who may struggle in the conditions.
