COURT KNEE had shown virtually nothing before being backed into joint favouritism at Thurles last week and though beaten into second by Scouting Party she did enough to suggest this moderate affair is within her capabilities. All Honours ran well when runner-up at Thurles in January before falling at Fairyhouse a month later while another last-time faller Snowell had shown a bit of promise earlier and could be well handicapped. Daytime Dreamer doesn't win very often though his overall form gives him a chance, but course and distance winner Coosan Belle probably needs even faster ground to regain the winning thread.
