This has been won by some smart performers and CAILIN ANNAMH can join them with ground conditions very much in her favour. Jessica Harrington's mare has won five of her nine races, mostly on a quick surface, and though she struggled on softer ground at Gowran last time that was a step up on her previous victories. Little King Robin was beaten six lengths in that latter event but should get a bit closer on today's revised terms while Top Madam looks a threat. She found 3m stretching her stamina last time and is better judged on her two victories in August. Diyala gained her only success to date in a handicap on the Flat at Musselburgh last month and made a decent start over timber at Tipperary but will need much more here while the promising chaser Shadow Eile looks in need of a confidence-booster back over hurdles after a fall at Galway was followed by a poor run at Roscommon.
