It's very rare to find a Ballydoyle representative at the bottom of a low grade handicap but Flower Bouquet hasn't produced much to date though she ran slightly better at Dundalk last time. California Rose completed a double on testing ground over this trip last summer and though much higher in the weights has to be considered while the veteran Killena Boy is certain to attract support after his recent victory here though a 9lb rise in the weights looks harsh. BENALEX PARK was in good form for much of last season and landed a handicap at Killarney on heavy ground in August. He'll be better for his recent run at Leopardstown and this looks within his capabilities.
