Coral Creek produced a couple of good runs on faster ground in the autumn but has been well beaten in much softer conditions recently and will probably find this too testing. Leah Claire, five times a winner on the Flat, hasn't broken her duck so far over timber but is very consistent and looks booked for a place though CEOL RUA will start a short-priced favourite after her impressive victory at Fairyhouse and is impossible to oppose.
