Tony Martin could win races with the stable cat at present so the lightly-raced and progressive WOODSOPHIESMILE is taken to follow up her hard-fought victory over a mile at Galway where she battled on bravely. Las Encinas is closing in on that elusive first victory and made Stephen Hero pull out the stops at Sligo last week when Rose Angel was behind. The latter looks held and it's Thefiddlerofduneen who looks the main threat as she followed a very good run over this trip at Leopardstown with a narrow defeat over hurdles at Roscommon last week.
