An excellent turnout for this Listed prize though some of the entries, particularly Askanna and Araucaria, look as though they need further. Definite Class also scored over a longer trip last time when she was awarded a race after finishing second but she has a victory over this trip to her credit and must be considered. Oilily has had a break since finishing runner-up in a Grade 3 at Down Royal in November and would be a threat to all on her earlier form. The four-year-old Little Green is progressing at a rate of knots and landed a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse last month. She gets all the allowances here and must go well but DARE TO DOUBT made a big impression when making all to beat Prima Vista in a Grade 2 at Naas last month and looks the one to beat.
