With not much to go on formwise, the market should be watched for clues but DUBH GO LEIR may be good enough. She made a very promising debut on fast ground at Wexford in July and was odds-on at Downpatrick the following month but didn't handle the soft going and finished a long way behind Return Spring. Today's conditions should be in her favour and she can gain compensation. Celerity Rules has been performing well enough though it remains to be seen how he handles this much faster ground while Seefood reverts back to a bumper after a promising run over hurdles at Kilbeggan and looks a threat. Kilbrew Lady has been consistent without finding much but could plod round for a place.
