Lady Bennett conceded BOBSKIER 18lb when successful by a length in this a year ago but the runner-up returns in much better form having made all for a very easy victory over 1m4f at Tramore on Saturday. She'll go up much more than the 5lb penalty she carries here and has to be the selection. Nabat Ali has only had five starts and is progressing nicely. She should get a stronger gallop than in a four-runner race at Wexford and looks a real threat. Empress Of Tara did very well in her first season as a three-year-old and though unraced since her victory at Dundalk in November should be ready for action and is on the short-list but Passion Planet probably needs further.
