Three of these are clear on official ratings. Something Graceful has been well beaten since scoring at Leopardstown in August but Beat The Ballot was caught in the shadows of the post over C&D last month and makes some appeal. However, GOLDEN SHOE was having his first start since September when scoring over track and trip a week ago and looks capable of going in again. Lord Kenmare has a bit to find with the selection on worse terms though he went close again here on Wednesday while Badger Daly could prove best of the rest.
