The first Grade Three event of the afternoon is the Novice Hurdle over two miles and we are giving a chance to exceptionally smart Gypsy Island, who is having her first run back since May 2021.
The daughter of Jeremy has bundles of ability but her career has been halted by two bad injuries, but she now returns after an absence and has a great record fresh.
Winning her bumper convincingly in August 2018, she was then stepped over hurdles and finished second to Arkle and Champion Chase winner Put The Kettle On.
Not seen until March 2019 after that run she returned with three quick-fire wins at Naas, Fairyhouse and Punchestown, beating some nice horses in Listed and Grade Three bumpers.
Suffering a big injury setback, she returned in May 2021 at Tipperary over hurdles and won well giving plenty of weight away.
Getting another problem she has not been seen since then but if coming back in the same form she could be big value.
