LISA'S LEGACY, twice a winner on the Flat in the UK, ran his best race to date over timber over the minimum trip at Cork last month and tackles this distance for the first time. He's handed the vote to go one better though Shantou Flyer is another stepping up markedly from the minimum and was staying on strongly in the same race. Connections of Over Church Road have been waiting for better ground though she's disappointed when fancied on a couple of occasions. Pennys Tune is hardly one to have faith in as she refused to race at Galway in September and has been slowly away in both subsequent starts. She has the ability for this but is probably best watched.
