Party Tiger travels over from the UK where he's been in decent form at Wolverhampton. CIRCUS RING has gone up 10lb for an easy victory at Dundalk but Ana O'Brien's claim reduces the extra by half and a double looks on the cards. Vociferous Marina showed her liking for soft ground at the Curragh in September and the runner-up is now rated 102 after a subsequent victory so she could be well handicapped despite a big weight. Zelaniya still looked inexperienced when landing a Gowran maiden in October and can make her mark this campaign while Massif Central has been unlucky not to lose his maiden tag.
