Tough Spirit scrambled home in a fast-ground maiden here earlier this month but didn't appear to handle softer conditions in a Roscommon handicap unlike SIMIYNA (NAP), who was beaten a neck when tackling older horses at the same fixture. Dermot Weld's filly looks certain to run her race again and is handed the vote though Mr Ormsby is greatly respected after an unlucky run at Killarney. Descendant got off the mark when sent to Wolverhampton though will need to step-up again while Waterboy's victory at Leopardstown was on very fast going. Rapture's Delight had looked promising before a poor run at Galway so needs to bounce back.
