Strandfield Lady came with a late burst to catch Keeping at Down Royal but the runner-up is much better off at the weights and should reverse the form. Something Graceful had been threatening to win a race and did so at Wexford so a 3lb rise shouldn't be an issue. FLEUR DE NUIT made supporters of the odds-on Unaccompanied sweat at Galway last week where she was well in the lead at this trip over that 1m6f. If she runs up to that form she should be good enough and Johnny Murtagh is a very positive booking. There are plenty of dangers including the lightly-raced Clara Bel La, though she's gone up 4lb for finishing second to Abou Ben at Limerick.
