Jim Bolger has a tremendous record with horses being brought out quickly after a run so the presence of Croc Na Feile just two days after her debut when runner-up to Mr Rock at Wexford is intriguing though she was beaten a long way. Ceylon is taking a step up in trip but should be suited, a remark that also applies to Diylawa who is a half-sister to four middle-distance winners and out of a mare who stayed 1m6f. Ode To Psyche has the form for this but she's had plenty of chances and taken none of them so a chance is taken with Dermot Weld's newcomer AKILIYNA, who was always likely to be a late developer being a half-sister to numerous middle-distance and hurdle winners.
