Definite Elegance has been looking as though she needs even further than this and testing conditions but both trip and ground appear ideal for Love On Top, who looks certain to get into the action after finding 2m too short at Limerick. Good As Gold has been finding the going too quick during the summer but this could rest between Lilly Of The Moor and THEATRE BIRD, who occupied the minor places behind Tabac Brun over this trip at Gowran earlier this month. There's little to separate them here but Ruby Walsh has been booked for the latter and that could just swing things her way.
