Form & Verdict

Best form is over further when a close third in a 2m7f Thurles maiden hurdle in November; well beaten when her jumping suffered at Fairyhouse in January when last seen; respected on her best form although her rating of 102 is beginning to look inflated.

Has made the frame on her last four starts; second to a well-fancied winner in 2m1f handicap at Down Royal on penultimate start (made a mistake at the last and rider briefly lost a rein, eased after her chance had gone); faded from the last over this trip at Punchestown last time.

Verdict

Milanaway is respected, while the handicap form shown by Shana Cloon will put her in the mix if she can repeat it. The selection is BARRIER after two good runs in maidens at Naas and Gowran. She is the standard bearer. Whatsupnellie can shake up a few on her hurdles debut. [Justin O’Hanlon]
