Anania returns to action after a long break and was disappointing when strongly fancied on her final start at Down Royal in September. SUFOOF produced her best run at Dundalk in October and all of her three runs this season have been on very testing ground. With better conditions likely she can make her allowance count against Aspar. Tommy Stack's charge has been narrowly beaten at short odds in his last three starts and was only caught close home over 6f at Navan last time. I Will Excel has now had 14 starts without winning but he's gone close on several occasions including in handicaps so isn't without a chance. Bubblesontherise led for a long way over 6f at the Curragh last time and it wouldn't be a shock to see her make all here.
