2m 4fGood (Good to Yielding in Places)
Galway Festival bumper winner COURT MAID made a promising start to her hurdling career when runner-up in a red-hot 2m maiden at Listowel (first, third, fourth and ninth have all won since) and, a likely to improve for this step up in trip, she can prove a tough nut to crack. Whatucallher shaped with lots of promise in two bumper starts last season and warrants plenty of respect equipped with a first-time tongue-tie on her hurdling bow, while Coillte Eile could prove best of the remainder.
Bumper winner COURT MAID shaped well when runner-up to a subsequent winner on her hurdles debut at Listowel last month and can go one better with progress on the cards. Whatucallher and Coillte Eile may give her most to think about.
