Verdict

Monkeylou, a winner over the course and distance when last seen on the Flat, hasn't done as well as expected over hurdles though will be better for last month's run, his first since November. Tintoretto won a Limerick handicap over this trip before finding 7f too short at the Curragh where he was staying on. Minnie Haha has never won in a dozen starts and looks high enough in the ratings while Mr Ormsby is inconsistent though well up to this at his best. ANGELS, a dual winner for Tim Easterby, deserves a change of fortune as she's been running really well and has only been raised 1lb for just failing to concede 16lb to Frosty Beach at Naas. She gets the nod though Procurator ended a long losing run when scoring at Roscommon and should make a bold bid to defy a 5lb rise.
