A low draw generally helps here which may just rule out Sunrise Song despite a much improved effort on soft ground at the Curragh when caught on the line. ELUSIVE IN PARIS was making his handicap debut when coming with a late run to beat Catfromtherock over 7f here two weeks ago. He looks to have enough pace for the shorter trip and can confirm the form with the runner-up and take this. She's My Dandy could provide the main threat as she has been running well over the minimum trip and looks well enough treated to make her presence felt from her low draw.
