FormscanBy Michael Graham - Henning won over this trip on penultimate start in Fairyhouse. She was unplaced when next seen in Thurles, but that was in a Grade 3 novice hurdle. She just gets into this contest with her mark of 116 and could have a significant part to play. THETYS may have more scope than others in this field. She stayed on well to make the breakthrough at Naas, on her sixth start, just over a month ago. That was in a higher grade, so she may be up to defying a 7lb rise. Royal Rhythm was strong in Clonmel last week. He had to make his own running there and, if still fresh, should be a contender up in class on ground he loves. He escaped with a 4lb rise from that recent victory. Friends N Commerce hasn't run over a trip as short as this since his debut more than two years ago. He has posted plenty of placed efforts, though. Positive Thinker keeps banking cheques and is another dropping back in trip.
