Irish Boy scored over C&D in June and looks to have every chance if reproducing his best and Sharp Bullet should go well having been placed in lower grade company of late. Dotty Darroch scored at Hamilton in July under today's apprentice and could figure, while Mr Mo Jo and Arriva La Diva have place claims. However, a chance is taken on BALLARINA, who may find a couple of lengths improvement with a 7lb apprentice taking over the reins. Eric Alston's mare has the plum draw and is better treated than most.
