Bleeding Hearts started favourite over a mile at Killarney after a promising debut at Fairyhouse but she weakened close home. How she'll cope with this much more testing ground is an unknown but it won't bother Captain Moonlite, who found fast going against him at Down Royal after better efforts in testing conditions. BACKDROP was very green on her debut at Leopardstown and pulled much too hard. She'll have been taught to settle and looks the one to be on. Hidden Oasis disappointed at Fairyhouse after a nice start behind War Command at Leopardstown but Trikala looked as though softer going would suit when runner-up to Home School at Roscommon and could provide the main threat.
