Verdict

Minnies Secret has shown nothing in two starts over hurdles but came home a long way clear in a Limerick bumper on heavy going and much better is expected. One First Cut was in touch when falling two out on her only start over timber but was then beaten a long way in a Listed bumper at Navan. Mary Sun won twice on the Flat in Germany and was well supported on her hurdling bow at Cork in November but was soon done with after leading to halfway. Better is expected of her but TARA DYLAN looks the one to be on. She was in contention when making a bad mistakes at the last on her hurdling bow at Thurles then was impeded when brought down early at Leopardstown and can gain compensation.
