In depth


ALICE JOHNSTON (NAP) was always travelling like a winner when landing a course and distance handicap last month where she had American Image, Jack Holiday and Mr Jacaranda chasing her home at a safe distance. She's up 6lb but that doesn't look enough to prevent a follow-up. Tiantu scored over 2m4f at Wexford and very rarely runs over a trip this short but Billy's Angel created a shock when scoring over hurdles at Tipperary though has shown very little in three runs over fences.
