Kateeva only won on the beach at Laytown last week and this is much more difficult, while the same comment applies to Smoky Cloud. Orpens Peach also scored in lesser company at Roscommon in June, but One Of Three has claims making a quick reappearance after finishing second at the Curragh on Sunday. However, UCANCHOOSE has held his form well since landing a double in the summer and won't need to find much improvement to get his head back in front here. Beauty Express could figure, but Zhukhov hasn't won since landing this race in 2009.
