ACTING TALENT made such a promising debut at Navan that she started odds-on here last week despite an absence since May. She didn't run as well as expected, however, but may have been short of peak fitness and is given another chance. The much more experienced Il Palazzo was behind a week ago and looks held and her stablemate Nymph may do better as she's another who returned from a long break last week at Cork. Fulminata wasn't beaten far behind Sister Slew at Galway and may be suited by this quicker ground which she faces for the first time.
