Fulminata had no answer to Cool Power at Leopardstown but this is no tougher and she should be thereabouts. Pastiches has had plenty of chances but this shorter trip may be what she requires though she was behind FIRE AND FLAME at Wexford and the latter, who ran her best race over this trip at the Curragh in July, could be good enough to finally get off the mark. Surreal looked suited by a longer trip at Wexford and Al Fahidi has been racing over much further.
