FormscanBy Michael Graham - A big run could be forthcoming from RED BALL OF FIRE in the first-time blinkers. She made a more than satisfactory return to action, after more than six months off, when keeping on well for third on the Flat in Sligo. She has won twice before over hurdles and Daniel King claims 5lb. Inchiquin Star is dangerous. She chased home a gambled-on favourite in Tipperary and was well clear of the remainder. Hi Ski was game off the front to score in Tipperary and could have more to offer off 5lb higher. She may not get an easy lead here, though. Bint Freya has been placed on her last two starts and can get involved. Milajess was a fair second in Clonmel, but that was on soft ground.
