TEOLEENA bids for a hat-trick after winning at Gowran and again at Navan on Friday. Jim Bolger's progressive filly can shrug off a penalty on the evidence of her latest cosy win. The lightly-raced and progressive Captain Teemo landed a course and distance handicap before a decent third behind News At Six at the Curragh and looks a big threat while Resiliency lived up to his name at Down Royal where he stayed on powerfully over that 1m2f. Hidden Universe, who completed a double in October, almost certainly needs further and softer conditions. Dalasiri bounced back to form when dead-heating at the Curragh though he's another who could find this on the short side under a penalty.
