Dermot Weld has a very good record in this so a chance is taken on the lightly-raced RASMEYAA. A winner on soft ground at Leopardstown a year ago, she reappeared in August with an excellent effort behind Fiesolana in a Group 3 at Tipperary when today's rival Tobann was just behind. Roger Varian send Spinacre over from the UK and she's already won twice in Ireland for Kevin Prendergast. She hasn't quite hit the heights this summer when transferred to France but wouldn't be coming here without good reason. Pearl Of Africa completed a hat-trick in early summer and has shown herself well up to this class in her two most recent outings.
