Dermot Weld has won this three times in eight years and relies on the three-year-old I'M Yours, who didn't look quite at her best when reappearing at Navan. Her age group have a fine record in this so she should prove a threat to all. Tobann has been competing at a high level since landing a premier handicap at Leopardstown in August and will be better for her recent run at Group 3 level. Mizzava ran in many of the best races after scoring here a year ago and was rarely disgraced. She'll be thereabouts if ready after her break but Euphrasia has penalties to carry for her victories last season at Group 3 and Listed level. EXOTIC made her belated debut at Galway in August and beat a modest bunch in good fashion. She'll need to do much more to land this but entries in some big races suggest she's well regarded and is given the nod.
