Willie McCreery is wasting no time bringing out GERALDINES LASS under a penalty after Saturday's Navan success and talented young rider Ricky Doyle will be on board again. It was a good performance to beat older horses that day and she races against her own age group here. Sun Queen had been showing promise over longer trips before dropping down to the minimum and scoring at Dundalk. She can make further progress as can Lechevalier Choisi, who made all for an impressive success over 6f at Navan. Jamesie ran over a mile on his reappearance and looked as though further than this was needed when staying on over 6f at Chester early last month.
