Formentera has shown nothing to date and may not come into her own until tackling fences. She was a long way behind when ALFA MIX finished fourth to Tomeric at Roscommon and Gavin Cromwell's charge can improve enough to take this very moderate opener. Email Rose was last seen well beaten in a Leopardstown bumper on St Stephen's Day but had shown potential over hurdles on his previous start while Steel Tornado has shown a glimmer of ability in bumpers but the remainder are harder to recommend.
