This has been run five times and four three-year-olds have been successful. Faleena is a very progressive filly who has thrived in testing ground and though 8lb higher for scoring at Bellewstown she looks certain to go well. She looks best of the younger brigade but OLFA is the one to be on. Dermot Weld's filly scored over 7f on good ground at Leopardstown in April but couldn't quite cope with an 8lb rise over the same C&D on much softer going the following month. She looks as though this trip will suit and can get back on the winning trail. Footprint had been going well on Polytrack before a very good effort behind Arctic at Navan so a big run from the latter in the previous race will be a pointer to his chances. Bubbly Bellini began his winning run on a mark of 51 and the assessor looks to have him in his grip now.
