QUE PASA beat the useful Indevan at Galway in September and though unable to quite get to King Of The Picts at Tipperary that was still a fine effort and she can defy her penalties. Gambling Girl is only a four-year-old and gets allowances. She looked a really smart novice when scoring easily at Gowran and has to be a threat. Little King Robin is incredibly consistent though she's probably better over further and Kilbarry Beauty will need to improve massively from her maiden victory at Killarney.
