Cul A Dun won this a year ago but has been in poor form this summer. Beauty Express has been going well and should be in the shake-up and though Advenio was beaten a long way at Sligo that was over 1m2f and she makes her handicap debut from a lowly mark. Headford Lady is 16lb higher than for her latest success but MIDNIGHT MUSIC looks the type for this. Dermot Weld's filly beat a big field at Navan in Ocober and made a fair return to action at the Curragh last month suggesting she can be a force this season from her current mark. Hot Sand is still a maiden but has produced several good efforts and should get involved.
