A very competitive handicap but CAPE OF GOOD GRACE produced such an impressive performance to land her maiden at Tipperary that she will be very difficult to beat on what looks a lenient mark. Clare Glen runs with a 5lb penalty for last week's Galway victory and another big effort is expected while Syann, Sceal Nua and Spirit Of Cuba are very closely matched on their run at Killarney. Hurricane Havoc is held by Clare Glen on previous running at the Curragh but further rain would enhance the chances of Few Are Chosen, a very easy winner on soft going here in June.
