Taraval may have found 3m too far at Cork last time and should do better dropped in trip. Wee Doll wasn't disgraced at big odds at Wexford, while Springfort Diva is improving with experience. Sligo Publican has to go on the short-list having already won a bumper and a point-to-point. She only found Rossa Parks too good on her hurdling debut at Limerick, while Chasing Shadows was beaten less than a length at Thurles last month. UNCONDITIONAL's run behind Steps To Freedom at Fairyhouse in September was a cracking effort so it was a surprise to see her back in a bumper at Galway next time. She could never go the pace there but this extra half-mile will be right up her street and she has plenty of scope.
