Mylestown Upper

Mylestown Upper has always given the impression that he would improve for an obstacle. This son of Balko finished second twice in bumpers and just looked a little short of speed in those contests. He steps up to 2m4f here, which should see him to better effect with Jamie Codd back on board once more. He recorded three-figure RPRs in both of those races, so he looks like a horse with a bit of potential and can land this opener for Denise Foster.


Nodoubtaboutthat got done by a nose at Fairyhouse last time and is up 3lb for that performance, but she’s a mare going the right way. She went down to the last looking like the winner and was just pegged back in the end. Her rider looked uncomfortable at various points and had to give her a niggle to hold position, so if she can settle better and get into a rhythm, she could be even better here. She won really well here back in September, putting the race to bed halfway out, so another big performance could be on the cards.


Willie Mullins’ mare has been pitched in the deep end on her last two starts but back in calmer waters here, she can go well. Crucially, she gets good ground here and slightly further to show her stamina to greater effect. She won her maiden on a nice surface at Punchestown back in September and her action there confirmed what we now know since, having been disappointing on winter ground since. This one could get 3m in time, but for now we expect her to get back to winning ways and reverse form with Lignou.


Justbecool ran a big race at Downpatrick back in March, finishing a two length second to My Manekineko. The way he stayed on really well that day, giving the impression of one who would enjoy the step up to these staying tests. That was compounded when finishing third at Tramore last time, when he just lacked the toe to go with the winner. He gives the impression of a horse on the upgrade and can improve again here. Paul Cawley takes off a handy 7lb here and he’s preferred to Ted Walsh’s Pictures Of Home.
