Hot Sand would be an appropriate winner of this but has now had 20 starts without managing to get his head in front. Dart Queen has proved equally frustrating and normally races over further, while this may also be too sharp for winning hurdler Raggletagglegypsy. ONDEAFEARS went close on her first start for Mick Halford at Killarney in June but paid the price for trying to match strides with favourite Charpoy at the same track last month. The drop in trip may suit and the filly is given another chance in this easier grade
