I’m going to put up and early one here as Redera is a huge price now and if he is going to have a chance in this tomorrow he will certainly not go off at 40/1 . He was a bit of an eye-catcher on his last run on the flat in the Irish Ceresarewich and I think there might be a chance he has been prepared for a shot at this of a very good mark. He has run well enough around here in the past of higher marks and that fact that he has 2 flat races this year after a very long break and then shows up here from a yard that can certainly get on ready is significant. 40/1 is too big.

This ran a great to finish 6th just outside the places and gave us a fair bit of excitement when looking a possible winner turning for home. But he had traveled wide all the way and that told in the end. I think he may be worth following
No matter what way I look at this race I can’t see anything other than Wicklow Brave finishing 2nd here. He won a really top class County Hurdle on the bridle on soft ground and has gone up to a 108 rated flat performer since. He has a serious fitness edge here and 12/1 looks huge. There is the option of just backing him at just above evens to place but that isn’t as much fun as 12/1 EW.
1 Point EW 12/1 boyles/lads
Wickow ran another great race to be 3rd here not far behind a very good looking Nichols Canyon and Faugheen
Sprinter Sacre’s form from last year looks good enough to win this race and on ground that doesn’t look too bad at the moment I think he should be a very solid favourite here with these conditions getting weight from most of the field. If he has improved at all he’ll win this easily.
3 Points win 3/1 365/tote/fred
Words not needed Sunning. He did fade a bit towards the end but un better ground in March UDS wont come close.
Liberty One interests me here as a dual hurdles winner who didn’t really progress over fences. His last win was over some decent yardstick’s and he could be on a nice mark here. 33/1 look big. The other that looks very interesting is Brod Na Heireann whose 4th in a hot maiden hurdle in Ireland reads very well given this mark. He probably needed his first run this year and 16/1 looks very good value .
½ Point win Liberty One 33/1 Generally
1 Point win Brod Na Heireann 16/1 Generally 18/1 Betway
Liberty looks to a have got injured and pulled up after 2 flghts . Brod flattered for a while but may need further
