Cats For Cash (7/4), So Enjoy (7/4), Wendy Howell (7/2), Patrick Joseph (8/1), Miraculum (33/1), Heather Blossom (50/1), Amber Run (66/1)

Verdict

CATS FOR CASH has had no joy in a couple of handicap hurdles but found only one too good at Ballinrobe when last in maiden company. Gordon Elliott’s charge has the beating of Patrick Joseph and Miraculum on these terms but So Enjoy has a shout at the weights, despite disappointing here last month. Amber Run showed little on his hurdling debut and Wendy Howell has struggled in bumpers though the latter represents Willie Mullins’ in-form yard and it would be no surprise to see a much better effort now hurdling.
