Those who witnessed BORDINI making all under a confident ride at Punchestown won't want to miss him here and it will be a surprise if he's beaten. He should be capable of seeing off Attribution with a weight difference of just 4lb while Missypet hasn't been seen since April though she was progressing at the time. Rock On The Moor attracted some support on her debut at Punchestown and duly obliged in sparkling fashion. She's a half-sister to Get Me Out Of Here and can only improve again. Moscow Magic ran very well to gain a surprise victory at Naas last month and, though penalised, can improve enough to get into the frame.
