One favourite has won this in 13 renewals. Glor Na Mara, who got off the mark at the 16th time of asking over a mile at Dundalk in November, made a very satisfactory return over 6f at the Curragh on Sunday but has never raced at this trip. Jazz Girl follower her C&D victory with success over 1m4f at Dundalk in October and has to be considered despite her absence but this can go to ROMAN FLIGHT. Charlie Swan's charge, a debut winner at Limerick last June, returned from a long break with a fine run at Dundalk a couple of weeks ago and that should have put him straight for this. Robin Hood was last seen finishing third in the Group 2 Beresford Stakes in 2010 and though unlikely to need the run the fast ground may just be too much for him after such a long break.
