Verdict

Make My Heart Fly has been competing at a much higher level since completing a four-timer on good ground last summer and ran well in a Navan Grade 3 last time. She has a long absence to overcome and the concession of 3lb to HAVINGAGOODTIME may prove beyond her. Henry De Bromhead's four-year-old turned a Grade 3 junior handicap at Cheltenham into a procession in April, making all and coming home unchallenged, so she looks an exciting prospect. The latter remark could also apply to Run For Mary, unbeaten in two bumpers and on her hurdles debut at Punchestown where she overcame jumping problems to land the odds. It's difficult to see anything else getting involved though Dandjira will improve for her hurdling debut at Listowel.
