Fiona Mullins hasn't had much experience under Rules and is up against some of the best amateurs around but her mount GOLDBOY showed much improved form when runner-up to Celtic Fashion at Cork and can go one better. Quinville Castle looks a threat as he was well suited by this trip when runner-up to Ask Vic at Kilbeggan while Fetter Lane showed some potential when a close third at Thurles in April. Intheolddays produced easily his best run to date at Down Royal where he stayed on strongly in the closing stages so this trip looks ideal.
