A victory would do some of these choicely-bred fillies the world of good for the paddocks. CALLISTAN is by Galileo and made a promising belated racecourse debut at Gowran where she was noted staying on nicely. She should improve enough to take this though Emerita will have come on for her run on soft ground at the Curragh. Focas Mor just failed to concede 8lb to Tom Dooley in a Gowran handicap though that was over 7f while Que Sera Sera steps up to this trip after attempting to make all over a mile at Leopardstown. The latter's stable companion Tap Dancing reappeared after a long break to run with credit at Navan and should strip much fitter here.
