Benbecula was in rude form last month with victories at Tramore and Fairyhouse and having gone up plenty for those successes, we reluctantly look elsewhere. SOMETHING GRACEFUL is still open to progression and we'll take Jim Bolger's filly to score. The daughter of Galileo didn't do a lot wrong at Leopardstown last time out, and the handicapper has sought not to raise her for that effort. Benefit Of Porter had a recent run over hurdles and is tried in a first time tonguestrap this afternoon while Napa Starr was rated significantly higher than these rivals a couple of seasons ago and it appears interesting that Connor King has been booked for the mount.
