POINT PIPER is fitted with a visor and hopefully they'll have the desired effect. He was outpaced for much of the way in the race won by Ghaamer at Cork but kept battling away and should have come on enough to take this. He's entered in all the big races to come and has a fitness advantage over Irish 2000 Guineas entry Stepwise, who made a fine debut behind Pearl Music at the Curragh in September. Coquette Noire disappointed at Dundalk and may not be suited to Polytrack but Dermot Weld's newcomer Khothry is related a a host of winners and may not need to be a world-beater to make her presence felt.
