This isn't much of a race and WAVER can make a successful start over timber. Aidan O'Brien's son of Galileo has never justified his pedigree but has managed to win twice on the Flat and the stable has done well with its few hurdlers. West Montan looks the main threat as she was in the lead when coming to grief at the third last on her hurdling debut at Down Royal. Sulu Sea showed a bit of potential in a Downpatrick bumper in June but White Month hasn't done much since transferring from the UK.
