Jim Bolger runs two and though SCEILG showed little in her first season she was always more likely to do better as a three-year-old and a mark of 61 may prove lenient enough to make a successful reappearance.

Todd ran well behind Indiana Charmer at Dundalk but that was over a mile and he was behind today's rival Relay over that track and trip in February. Randall's Alannah has run in better company but was beaten a long way on her reappearance at Leopardstown.
