Aidan O'Brien is quick to bring out Just Pretending after she easily landed a Navan maiden on Tuesday and she wouldn't be here unless connections thought she had a chance. Talitha Kum had some fair form last year and took advantage of her fillies' allowance to beat better fancied rivals at Naas but all known form points to this being between Rawaaq and WE'LL GO WALKING. The former proved that she had trained on with a smooth victory in a similar race over 7f here last month and will take some beating but it's Jim Bolger's filly who gets the vote as she ran a highly creditable second to the older Caponata at Gowran on only her second racecourse appearance.
