The brilliant dual championship bumper winner FAYONAGH makes her long-awaited hurdling debut. The winner of all four races since making her debut, her 20-length victory on testing ground in a Listed contest here signalled her talents before victories at Cheltenham and Punchestown served to whet the appetite for her jumping career. She'll be at very short odds but is impossible to oppose. Roseriver Has is quickly brought out over hurdles after winning a bumper at Downpatrick and looks certain to make a hurdler as does Mysloegin, who won a Galway bumper with something in hand. Vittorio hasn't lived up to expectations since a very easy debut success at Roscommon.
