MINELLA FIVEO ran a fine race behind Railway Icon over 3m at Cork in July and looked in need of a greater test of stamina when a close third behind Rossvos over this trip at Galway. He will be difficult to beat with a strong gallop and just gets the nod over The Shaughraun, who was behind him at Cork and is probably even more in need of a longer trip. Like A Ballerina has shown some ability though will need to do much better but if Gordon Elliott's point-to-point recruit Slan Go Foill gets a run from his reserve spot he'll be one to note.
