Equation Of Time has had his last 10 races at Dundalk and has never reached a place in five starts on Turf. CASTLE BAR SLING hasn't won for a very long time but has generally competed at a higher level and has dropped to a fair mark so gets the vote. Waterloo Sunrise has had 16 starts on Turf and never won and is best on faster going while the maiden Solar Focus has only shown moderate ability so far from this mark. Sweet Cherry had very ordinary form in the UK but made an encouraging debut for new connections at Naas and wouldn't need to improve much to take a hand.
