Timeform on Dolcita

Spare Brakes - 13:00 Fairyhouse

Spare Brakes was fitter for his reappearance and finished a good second over hurdles at Clonmel last time and is taken to translate that form back over fences here. Dakota Moirette is feared most as he returns from a break on a lenient mark, while Halsafari has less on his plate here so is worth a second look too.

Dolcita - 14:10 Fairyhouse

Dolcita hasn't yet achieved as much as stablemates Yukon Lil and Colreevy, but she looked a useful mare in the making when successful at Tramore last month, a race won by Laurina for the same connections back in 2017, and she is an intriguing runner here. Minella Melody has to concede weight all round but she shouldn't be dismissed lightly.

Santa Rossa - 14:45 Fairyhouse

Santa Rossa wasn't far off the best bumper horses last season and can make a winning hurdling debut/return at the main expense of Jon Snow, who sets a fairly useful standard and is open to further improvement. Galet d'Oudairies is an interesting French-recruit for Gordon Elliott and needs keeping an eye on.
