It's hardly surprising that Charles O'Brien brings EDITH COWAN out with a penalty for last week's easy victory over track and trip as she's been raised an incredible 13lb so is 8lb better in. Coupled with regular rider Ray Dawson's claim she looks much too well handicapped for these rivals. Lily's Star has won twice from 38 starts but is still a few pounds high due to her consistency and the veteran Collingwood could prove more of a threat. He's been staying on well over 7f in his most recent races so the extra furlong will be in his favour. Dansili Dual has been steadily finding his feet since arriving from Richard Hannon's yard and ran his best race to date at Navan recently while Teoranta hasn't had much experience and ran very well for a long way over 1m2f at Navan last month.
