Last season's course and distance winner Sheilas Wish also won over this trip at Wexford but reappears on a high enough mark. Saga Eiger take a big step up in distance after winning a small race at Dundalk but there are no stamina reservations surrounding another Polytrack winner, Days Ahead, while South South West arrives off the back of a successful campaign over hurdles. FIONNUAR is lightly-raced and goes well fresh, as she proved when winning on her debut at the Curragh last July. The trip is unlikely to be a problem as she's already been placed over 1m3f and her yard is already firing in the winners. Aegean Sky might need this but is preferred to veteran Hide The Evidence of the others.
