The Galileo filly URBAN BALL was always likely to do better when tackling middle distances as she did for the first time when beaten a short-head by Moo Sahara over the C&D last month. That was her first start for four months and she should get off the mark. Supernovae was around 2l behind and looks held as does fourth-placed Posh Frock but Edge Of Sanity looks a threat. Jim Bolger is very adept at stepping his runners up in distance successfully and this daughter of a middle-distance mare found 7f much too short here last time. If Or When started favourite on her debut at the Curragh but found heavy ground against her though she found no improvement when brought here for her next start a fortnight ago.
