Placed in all three outings at this track, DANCING ROE gets first-time blinkers and they may do the trick. Christy Roche's charge gets the nod on the back of a third here last time and is preferred to to Kestrel, beaten nine lengths when runner-up at the same meeting on his latest start. Lilly The Lioness was also placed at this venue recently while point-to-point winner Croghill Tuppence showed some promise on his hurdling debut in June and looks likely to improve.
