HARPIST has caused plenty of heartache for those punters that have supported her into short odds in the past, but the winner of her most recent reverse at Gowran Park has gone on to be rated in the mid-80's, so one would imagine that David Wachman's filly would have too much class for these rivals. Live Dangerously has been highly tried and hasn't been that far away when dropped to 6f. Kimbay was easy to back on debut at Leopardstown but she stayed on resolutely and could be capable of building upon that performance. Surreal has had plenty of chances and will need to find more in order to win this.
