FormscanBy Michael Graham - KALANISI DUBH finished unplaced when a big price for a Grade 3 novice hurdle in Clonmel, but this should be more to her liking. Her previous two runs saw her win at Down Royal before being beaten by a head at the same track. Thecornerhouse has literally turned the corner. She has sealed victories in her last couple of starts in Thurles and in Down Royal when notably strong on the run-in. She drops back in trip, but the question is whether the handicapper has her measure off 10lb higher. Memory Of Youth has claims on her third place over further in Fairyhouse. The Connector delivered in Punchestown and will have plenty of supporters. Miss Tempo is returning off a long absence, but was formerly useful.
