Dermot Weld won this with an odds-on chance last year so DISCIPLINE, a full sister to Famous Name and related to numerous other winners, is taken to make a successful debut. Jim Bolger won the previous two and Fiuntach has the benefit of experience having finished third at Cork last month. However, she was well beaten and didn't appear to enjoy the testing ground. Keukenhof looks more of a threat as she made a very encouraging debut at Dundalk in February behind Va Pensiero, who won a much better race on Wednesday. Enchanted Dawn has been beaten a long way in both starts over 6f but is much more likely to be suited by this trip while any money for the Dutch Art filly Sheer Intensity would be interesting.
