Both Jpevie and Eighteen Summers have a chance on the pick of last year's form while Jackemil scored over today's trip at Limerick before failing to figure over 1m2f at Navan. Daigreen could also figure on his recent second at Tipperary but Morethanafeeling remains 9lb higher than when last winning. It was soft ground at Gowran when LUCKY KITTEN returned an impressive winner and, though a 14lb hike in the weights seems a little excessive, Dermot Weld's filly gets a tentative vote in an open handicap.
