Isabella Liberty bounced back to form at Ballinrobe where she stayed on strongly at the finish - though 7lb higher, she looks to have more in the tank. Let Her Cry was suited by heavy conditions when landing a Ballinrobe maiden then didn't appear to enjoy fast ground and a longer trip at Tramore. Josephine Marcus hasn't had much experience and might be better over further, though she's run some good races in similar conditions. Mystic Princess won here a year ago and had dropped to a fair mark when successful at Downpatrick earlier this month though a 6lb rise makes this more difficult. ANNIE ALAINN was beaten over four lengths in that latter race though she was in the lead at this trip and the pull in the weights can enable her to reverse the form and take this. Both Our Rachael and My Pollyanna have chances from the bottom of the handicap, especially the former who was beaten a nose on the Flat at Clonmel a couple of weeks ago, but the consistent Rathmuck Native has an absence to overcome.
