MARAKOUSH has undoubtedly been disappointing but he's been given a break since beaten by Sundara at Leopardstown in May and hopefully has strengthened up enough to start paying his way. Jim Bolger found a way to beat the selection that day as the winner made all so Kevin Manning may employ similar tactics on Beyond Intensity, though his mount has looked very ordinary so far. Dancingwithangels has been inconsistent but produces her best form on ground with some give and any further rain would aid her cause though she's now had 29 starts without winning. Jessica Harrington's Neverushacon is related to a couple of winners in France and wouldn't need to be anything special to make a successful debut.
