LITTLE WHITE CLOUD is by Dalakhani out of a stoutly bred mare so the 7f of his debut at Leopardstown in September would have been wholly inadequate. He stayed on to good effect after being outpaced at halfway and though he'll do better next season he should be good enough for this. Cape Glory is another bred for further and also made a promising start when a close fourth over this C&D in September. He looks the main threat as Eusepio only showed moderate form in his three starts in mid-summer. Mischief N Mayhem is a newcomer to note as she's by Nayef out of a Moyglare winner and a half-sister to three winners.
