Goodthynemilan is an honest type who gallops and jumps well for Gordon Elliott, and she is of interest here returned to hurdles off a mark of 92 (won over fences off 102 last time out). That being said, she might just be vulnerable to an improver and ASK HEATHER could just be that. Second in a maiden to a smart Willie Mullins inmate last time, the six-year-old will appreciate this return to handicap company. The Grey Guy and Queen Khaleesi look best of the remainder.
The vote goes to QUEEN KHALEESI, who was beaten just ¾-length by Goodthynemilan at Thurles last month and the race may have come too soon when fourth at Fairyhouse 6 days later. With Goodthynemilan due to run here on Sunday, the way looks clear for Queen Khaleesi to finally get off the mark. Assuming Gordon Elliott's charge doesn't go to post, The Grey Guy and Ask Heather can fill the places.
