Swiss Bird– 5.40 Kilbeggan (16/1 – bet365)

Hailing from Eoin Christopher McCarthy’s yard, Swiss Bird could strike at a big price at Kilbeggan in a 3m1f Handicap Hurdle.

The mare produced an encouraging effort at Tipperary over three miles back in October, finishing a length and a quarter behind the winner when 1lb higher in the ratings.

Can Swiss Bird bounce back to form for Eoin Christopher McCarthy?

The seven-year-old has yet to build on that form, struggling twice at shorter distances in tougher conditions.

The return to better ground should suit the daughter of Getaway and she has proven to stay this trip in the past.

With a current price of 16/1, Swiss Bird could bounce back to form here.
