A moderate affair in which none of these have ever won on the track nor over the distance. Quinine landed a minor race at Down Royal before finishing down the field in a nursery here while Monakova found 7f on this track too far a couple of weeks ago and could do better over tonight's trip. Longfield Lad has his first start on the surface but this looks his best trip as it does for Cloth Of Heaven, who hasn't looked suited by heavy ground. DESERT FANTASY showed her first real sign of ability when staying on strongly over 5f at Bellewstown. This will be her first start on the surface but she has a bit more scope than most and looks well enough treated to gain her first success.
