WEST COAST DREAM repelled all challengers when making most of the running at Leopardstown a week ago and the handicapper hasn't been harsh with a 5lb rise for Andy Oliver's progressive son of Oasis Dream. Edenshaw ran very well behind Sing Softly in a maiden here a fortnight ago and the winner will be fancied for the Group 3 earlier though three-year-olds don't have a great record in the race. Jedward never ran as a juvenile and only twice last season but showed very good pace to land a Navan maiden and will surely improve this year. First In Command doesn't win often enough but is 9lb lower than when beginning last season and shouldn't be overlooked. Majestic Times comes back for another crack at the race he won in 2004 and 2005 but hasn't been seen since October 2009. Rahya Cass represents the in-form Tommy Stack and has a C&D success to her credit.
