Tommy Stack's recent acquisition from the UK Aurelia Cotta is a real fast ground specialist as she's shown with two victories at Bath this season. Chocolate Diamond has improved with each run in maidens and enters handicap company on a fair mark while Saldanha Bay found 1m4f much too far at Tramore after showing promise at around this trip earlier. It's a long time since Carenza gained her only success but she's been running well in this sort of grade and will be difficult to keep out of the frame. Willie Mullins has been unable to get a race out of Laviniad but she's proved herself on good and faster ground and provided the going doesn't turn soft she'll be a threat. AMAZING STAR (NAP) is in excellent shape and followed his comfortable success at Leopardstown with a big run after a 9lb rise at Killarney last week where he was a bit unlucky behind Miller Beach. Compensation awaits here.
