Both Scots Gaelic and Snap Alam bounced back to winning form recently and the latter appears to have got away leniently with just a 3lb rise for her Wexford victory. She should go well as should Calle Aneto, who was only a length behind her in fourth at Wexford and will be suited by the longer trip. KASTANIA was behind Scots Gaelic at Killarney but that wasn't her true form as she refused to settle in the early stages and wasn't punished. She wasn't beaten far at the finish and with a pull in the weights and further to travel she can take her revenge and land this. Moving Statue and Six Silver Lane are others to consider in a tight handicap.
