Timeform on Hugo'N Taz

Azua Emery - 16:40 Fairyhouse

This looks a good opening for Azua Emery, who ran one of her best races to date partnered with Davy Russell for the first time at Cork last month. Admittedly, she was beaten 17 lengths that day, but this looks a weak maiden hurdle and it will be disappointing if she isn't able to open her account. Lily Trotter looks the danger after her improved second at Limerick last time.

Hugo 'N Taz - 18:25 Fairyhouse

Hugo 'N Taz has shown plenty over fences this season, hitting the frame on his last four starts, and could be up to making a winning start over hurdles. This doesn't look the strongest race, with Robin The Hare opposable, and Denis Hogan has his string in good order at present. Cluan Dara wasn't disgraced at Clonmel last time and looks the danger back up in trip.

Ifyoucatchmenow - 19:25 Fairyhouse

Ifyoucatchmenow was an expensive purchase after winning a point last year and has shown enough in two starts in bumpers to suggest she is up to winning a race of this nature. She came on plenty for her Rules debut when finishing second at Gowran Park last time, and seems sure to be suited by the step up to two and a half miles here. Western Victory looks the danger.
