Slipper Satin made a winning handicap debut at Killarney and a 7lb rise is unlikely to prevent another big run with Joseph O'Brien again in the saddle. Modista easily landed a Sligo maiden and wasn't beaten too far in a handicap there last month while Windsor Queen ploughed through the Roscommon mud to beat three rivals in May and connections have been waiting for similar conditions. PROGENITOR won three times on Polytrack for David Lanigan in the UK and has joined Denis Hogan. He ran a fine race at Leicester on his most recent start in July and can make a winning debut for new connections.
