Appletreemagic continues to run well on turf since her success on polytrack at Dundalk so it's hardly surprising she has shot up the weights. He head third behind Inishtearaght at Naas a couple of weeks ago points to her obvious chance here though she may just meet her match in FORTUNA'S BLADE. Edward Harty's filly has been making steady progress this year and did well to finish fourth behind La Chassotte at Leopardstown last time. Little Bug has proved better on polytrack than turf and has only won once from 23 starts but Aseasyas likes this track and is 1lb lower than when runner-up here in August.
