Overland Express won a maiden over the course and distance then a Down Royal Handicap but couldn't handle the weight rise on her hat-trick attempt. Surreal also looked a bit high in the ratings at Gowran last time though she'll be better back over this trip and her rider's claim is a bonus. Morga has a 10lb claimer on her back but her only victory came on very fast ground so this looks destined for MODISTA. Kevin Prendergast's filly was having only her fourth start when storming home in testing ground at Listowel and though the assessor has had his say with an 8lb rise there's plenty more to come and she can score again.
