Yorkshire raiders Sioux Rising, Coolminx and Blue Moon haven't been sent over for the fun of it and each has something to recommend them. Preference is just for the former, who will have his rider's claim to help, but this can stay at home via FLIC FLAC. Dermot Weld's filly hated the heavy ground at the Curragh last time but was in tremendous form at the backend of last year, including on this track, and still has scope to improve further. Shirley Blake came up against a progressive type in Mamma Rosa at Listowel and has some good form here, while Brazilian Breeze has been improving steadily and produced a very good run behind Winning Impact at Roscommon last time.
