Marco Botti's Pelerin made a winning debut on Polytrack at Kempton a year ago and has been racing at this level since landing a Thirsk handicap in May. Slipper Orchid has had five runs here and won four of them including two this month. She always gives her best and she wasn't beaten far at this level at the Galway Festival. Maontri completed a four-timer at a lower level earlier this year but has twice finished behind Slipper Orchid this month. Some Spirit has only had five races and hasn't been beaten far at Group 3 level since a very easy winner of a Leopardstown maiden in July. Stereo Love was having only her second Polytrack start when scrambling home at Kempton and is elevated into this company for the first time, though Clive Cox wouldn't be sending her here without good reason. Adeste Fideles has been tried over a range of trips but got off the mark over 6f here last week. Stablemate Beyond Brilliance looked to be feeling the effects of a very long season at Leopardstown on Saturday however. FASTNET MIST is improving fast and followed her maiden victory at the Curragh with an excellent effort behind Avenue Gabriel in a Listed contest at Naas - further progress can see her take this.
