Just five runners but all have some sort of chance though Longfield Lad appeared to improve when dropped back to 6f last time. Teoirim has been showing very good speed in maidens and makes her nursery debut from a reasonable mark but Mister Aviation could be better suited by a big field and a strong gallop. Count Of Limonade and CEST NOTRE GRIS met at Leopardstown in June when they occupied the minor places behind Einsteins Folly. The former finished a length in front that day but with a 3lb pull and better subsequent form it's Jim Gorman's colt who gets the nod.
