Miss Faustino is a credit to her connections having run with great consistency since her debut a year ago. She has a 5lbs penalty for Tuesday's victory at Sligo but that shouldn't prevent another big effort. Purple Land is still a maiden and has a big weight to carry but he's been competing at a high level and a mark of 84 doesn't appear extreme. Roicead made a promising debut at Fairyhouse a month ago and put that experience to good use at Roscommon when making most to beat Mutamaleq. He's still progressing and must be a threat but it's time ONE SET was scoring again. Ger Lyons' charge is 7lbs lower than when beating today's rival Iron Major at Dundalk in November. He found a mile just stretching his stamina at Naas last time and looks to have slipped to a winning mark.
