Mutiska spurned a good opportunity at Wexford and looks vulnerable with her penalty for her only success on the Flat. Faustina Pius ran a bit better on fast going at Killarney but looks difficult to place while Pleased As Punch ran poorly last time but may do better on this easier surface. Ultra Light showed her first sign of form for a long time when runner-up to Little King Robin at Downpatrick on Sunday and a repeat should be good enough to see her in the mix but RHINESTONE COWGIRL gets the nod after fine efforts over the minimum trip at Ballinrobe and Roscommon where she's been staying on at the finish. Stay In My Heart disappointed at Killarney after two promising earlier runs.
