PENNY SERENADE just got up over 7f at Limerick but showed that dropping back to 6f held no fears when beating a big field at Naas. Not surprisingly she's shot up in the weights but should be capable of even better and can complete a hat-trick. Live Dangerously had no answer to today's rival Harpist at Down Royal and could only stay on late over that 7f trip. The winner made all so she's another who won't be inconvenienced by stepping down. Johnny Murtagh tries Global Icon in blinkers and along with a slight drop in the weights it could be enough to galvanise him into action. Beau Satchel attracted some support at Naas yesterday but finished out of the money..
