Billyford is the only course and distance winner in the line-up, though his last victory was in 2012. Polly Douglas was well beaten on her only start over the track and trip in July and ran over 6f at the Curragh last time while Tipperary winner Hard Times has yet to reach a place in seven all-weather starts. Carrigeen Prince did a bit better over 7f at Gowran last time but had been well beaten here earlier so this can go to the veteran STAR LINKS (NAP). A winner here and in the UK 13 times, he has 10 all-weather victories to his credit and reappeared after a long break with an eye-catching run over 7f a fortnight ago. Matriarch is running well enough to be considered if getting a run from her reserve spot.
