Verdict

Ruaille Buaille’s dam is a sister to the smart Hidden Cyclone while Dream Pioneer is related to three winners over hurdles. The betting may give some clue to that pair’s chances debuting for powerful yards but LADY BREFFNI showed some ability when third to the progressive Uisce Solas in a bumper at Tipperary on her introduction and the runner-up has subsequently won. She should go close on that form and Joseph O’Brien’s mare gets the vote. Caer may finish closer dropping down in trip today but the remainder are harder to recommend.
