Four-year-olds don't have it easy against their elders at this time of year and Stay In My Heart may find this a bit daunting despite several good efforts. Baidin Fheilimi is progressing at a rate of knots though faces easily her stiffest challenge to date but The Lady Granuaille has reverted to hurdling on a fair mark and showed real determination to score at Roscommon. Ocean Bright continues to climb the weights and her victories have been over 3m so GLIBIN is given the nod as she's on an 8lb better mark than over fences and ran very well at Galway last time. Pollywollydoodle was a very easy maiden winner at Sligo and doesn't look overburdened on her handicap debut.
