Unlike the first division, none of these arrive in any sort of form but something has to win and it might as well be GORT NA MONA. Jim Bolger's filly only has one success to her credit but she's reasonably consistent and may find this track and trip to her liking. Prince Of Dubai is well enough handicapped on the bulk of last year's form but Night Singer was a big disappointment when fancied at Clonmel last time. First Friday has shown on occasions that a race of this nature is within his scope but the market should be watched for clues as to the remainder.
