This shouldn't take much winning and though BAINNE is only moderate she deserves to win a race after a gallant attempt to make all over 6f here three weeks ago. She was only caught in the dying strides and this looks an ideal opportunity to get on the scoresheet. Queen Of The Sand appears to be making progress as she followed a close third over the C&D with a fair run in a nursery over a furlong shorter. She looks a threat though John Oxx and Declan McDonagh will be looking to make a winning start to their official racing partnership with newcomer Daluka, though as a daughter of Dylan Thomas she's likely to do better in her second season. Other newcomers to note are the well drawn pair Elusive Ice and Senyuman though the market looks the best option as to the merits of the newcomers.
