FormscanBy Alan Magee - Those with jumping experience make limited appeal and perhaps LA TULIPE NOIRE can score on her debut over hurdles. The Ciaran Murphy-trained filly won over a mile at Dundalk last winter and has also shown promise with cut in the ground on turf, although stamina is a concern as she has yet to race beyond nine furlongs. St Faz won over 1m5f at Down Royal but didn’t jump great on his hurdling debut when a moderate third to Nurburgring at Killarney with Pigeon House behind in fourth. The latter fared better subsequently when runner-up to An Bradan Feasa at Ballinrobe with Expelliarmus over two lengths adrift in third. Doctor Nightingale has plenty of experience over hurdles and holds Emotivo on running behind Annie Agnew at Down Royal. Open To Question hails from a yard with a good record in this type of event and he’s now blinkered after three maiden outings on the Flat.
