FormscanBy Donal Murphy - With a rating of 155, FERONILY is the one to beat. He defeated a quality field when taking a Grade 1 at Punchestown last season, providing Emmet Mullins and Donagh Meyler with their first success at the highest level. Last seen finishing a solid fifth in the French Champion Hurdle at Auteuil in May, the Getaway six-year-old starts off in the colours of JP McManus now. Frontal Assault won this race 12-months ago and has ran some good races in defeat since. Fifth in the Troytown and sixth in the Thyestes, he should be able to put his experience to good use. Lucid Dreams impressed at Sligo last week and it'll be interesting to see how he fares stepping up in class. My Design faces a stiff task, but isn't without a squeak, getting weight from her three rivals and with Ray Barron claiming 7lb.
