Katie Walsh teams up with Willie Mullins on board Dysart Dancer, a winning bumper and hurdler last year who made a successful return from a long absence when scoring over timber at Kilbeggan in June. She'll make a smart hurdler in time but on this occasion may have to give best to STORM AWAY, a dual bumper winner and not beaten far in similar races to this on the Flat over slightly shorter trips. Point The Toes has been going well over hurdles and will like the fast ground and none of the remaining trio can be completely dismissed in a race where tactics could prove important.
