DEFINITE DOYENNE showed nothing in three maidens at Dundalk last year but it was a different matter on her reappearance and handicap debut at Cork last week where she ploughed through the mud for a very impressive victory over today's rival Rince Deireanach. She's been hit with a 12lb rise but is probably still ahead of the handicapper. The runner-up has to get much closer on the revised terms but fourth-placed Mojambo was beaten a long way. Magic Sea's only juvenile victory came on soft ground so he won't mind the conditions but Tagle has only run at Dundalk where he showed improved form to land a handicap there last month.
