Bobby Boy made a successful debut on ground with plenty of give at Naas a year ago but didn't make the expected progress in his next two starts when well supported. Minnie Haha also makes her handicap debut but performed well in large-field maidens on her two starts in October and doesn't look on a bad mark. CAUTIOUS APPROACH (NAP) ran very well when runner-up in a big field of maidens here in September so it was no shock when she reappeared at Dundalk three weeks ago with a smooth maiden success. She looks leniently treated here off 66 and can complete a double. Prosecution does best on heavy going but Hasselnott arrives in good form and won a handicap here in September.
