Bobskier is the only course and distance winner in the line-up and will have come on for his recent reappearance at Dundalk. La Oliva ran poorly over hurdles earlier this month and her only victory has come on Polytrack while Time Travel is also a specialist on that surface and battled on strongly to account for The Black Devil and Fellisha at Dundalk three weeks ago. The winner should confirm the form and go well but it's about time LADY LYRATH was winning and this looks her chance. She's been narrowly beaten from this sort of mark on a couple of occasions and with the likely strong gallop in her favour can gain her first success on her 20th start.
