Delta Dawn has a superb pedigree and showed last summer there are races to be won with him though he hasn't been seen since last August, which is a concern. Avarice was well supported for a Leopardstown handicap in July but was caught on the line over this trip. The third has been well beaten subsequently and CALDWELL looks to have more scope. Dermot Weld's charge was very green on heavy ground at Bellewstown in August but showed plenty of ability and will have come on a bundle for the experience. Nashy and Pin Your Hopes both disappointed last time but Tashi has been running well enough to get involved.
