Dermot Weld has won the last two of these but Yellow Rosebud has twice been narrowly beaten by LADY WINGSHOT over this trip and may lose out again. The winner has since been beaten over 6f and a mile but this looks the perfect trip and though slightly worse off with her great rival for her C&D victory in August her turn of foot can see her home. Custom Cut deserved her chance in Listed company at Killarney after her mid-summer hat-trick but ran poorly on the heavy ground so Coolnagree looks a better option, though she has four lengths to make up on the selection on that run over the C&D in August.
