Daytime Dreamer usually runs well here and had dropped to a winnable mark when scoring over the course and distance last month. He's gone up 6lb but it will be a surprise if he's not in the hunt again. Pink Goddess also likes it around here as she demonstrated last month but she was 12l behind Daytime Dreamer subsequently and it's difficult to see her reversing the form. CYRAS LOVE had shown virtually nothing before a much improved effort behind Paudi The Punter at Galway and if maintaining that progress would be very difficult to beat. She is handed the vote though there are plenty of dangers including Alubari, who ran much better behind Formal Bid at Kilbeggan.
