Diesel Ten couldn't cope with very fast ground last time and is much better judged on his earlier runs in softer going. He looks well enough handicapped to get involved though the same remark applies to WINDSOR QUEEN. She beat three rivals at Roscommon in May and was having her first subsequent run when an excellent second to Modista at Listowel. There's more to come and she can score here though Stony Grey was having just his sixth start when scoring comfortably over 1m4f at Listowel. Fairylike's second to Shalaman at Dundalk was also a fine run though that was also over a longer trip and this could prove just on the short side.
