PUTTORE showed great promise in her two runs last season and made a sparkling return to action at the Curragh last weekend where she soon stamped her authority on proceedings. She looks a pattern race filly in the making and should take this. Catch The Eye is on the upgrade and also won very easily when last seen a month ago. He looks a threat as does Baitsileir, though the form of his Naas victory hasn't worked out. Last Crusade has been racing in stronger company but has to concede weights all round and Giant Step has been very disappointing since his victory at Cork in April.
