Jennys Melody to one better over fences

2.25 Thurles  JENNYS MELODY   4pts @ 4/1

Jennys Melody narrowly failed to make a winning chase debut at Fairyhouse fifteen days ago behind one of her rivals here West Bridge & on 5lb better terms is strongly fancied to reverse that 1/2l defeat. Previously, on her debut for trainer Stuart Crawford, she’d run a massive race over hurdles following seven months off at Punchestown finishing fourth to some much higher rated opponents. The lightly-raced 9yo ran about a stone above her hurdling mark that day & I had her earmarked as a future handicap hurdle winner, so the fact connections are pursuing a chasing route seems highly significant. The selection is rated superior to her Fairyhouse conqueror West Bridge over both hurdles & fences & I would be very surprised if the form was upheld on these terms. I’m hoping the Willie Mullins 9yo Kate Appleby Shoes makes the market for the selection. The step-up to three miles should suit her & she can’t have it soft enough so any drying of the ground will not be in her favour. On a line through West Bridge there’s little between her & Jennys Melody on these terms but I think our  mare is sure to improve on that first run over fences & I’m emphatically in her camp. The one I’m worried about is the Jessie Harrington 7yo Magic Of Light. She bit off more than she could chew in a big Leopardstown handicap last time & will be much happier back in mares novice company. She holds Kate Appleby Shoes on bits of form & has also promised to improve at three miles. She has the best chase form in the book & looks the one to beat. One or two of these promise to have a bit too much toe for the stayer Routes Choice & Youcantcallherthat will find it difficult under a double penalty.
