Jim Bolger won this last year so Mona Brown is an interesting newcomer though the daughter of Dylan Thomas will probably need further in time. Starstruck was totally unfancied on her debut at Cork and made little impression though she will have come on a great deal for the experience. However, that was over 1m1f so it's a surprise to see the daughter of Galileo dropping in trip. SHAMORA hasn't done much wrong and should get off the mark. She made a promising start over a mile at Wexford and ran well over that trip behind Battle Of Saratoga last month, form that suggests this looks made for her.
