Eddie Lynam has three entries and the vote goes to Luke Dempsey's mount REGAL POWER, who won over 6f here in June and looks to have been crying out for this trip. Diesel Ten hasn't had much experience but should give a good account while Fairylike responds well to Ana O'Brien and will like the fast ground better than most. Daring Man has run some tremendous races in very tough handicaps but amazingly has never won in 37 starts on Turf though he has one Polytrack victory to his credit, on his debut in 2008. He's very well handicapped and it would be no surprise to see him finally get off the mark.
