Winning point-to-pointer Lorvon Pearl couldn't match the winner's finishing burst at Tipperary in April 2018 but has changed yards and won't lack fitness. QUEENS BROOK cost £160,000 at the sales after landing a Dromahane point and the half-sister to Shotgun Paddy looks the one to beat. Nelly's Money has had her chances though her best run was on heavy ground so more rain would help. Banntown Girl showed enough promise at Cork to suggest she can get into contention.
