Midsummer Drama's form of last year gives her a shout if returning to action fully tuned-up. But BEDROCK LADY has the more recent form with a third at Kilbeggan last month so Willie Mullins' mare gets the nod. Lusobar is preferred to both Divine Steps and Majestic Preacher on her recent fourth at Roscommon while Sensing could have a say on her earlier fifth at Cork. The selection's stablemate, Supreme Bailerina, is out of a sister to the useful jumper St Pirran and makes most appeal of the newcomers.
