Curragh Golan finished closer at Tramore last time and may be involved once again. But MOSSY ISLAND was making his handicap debut when fourth at Down Royal a fortnight ago and, with further progress expected, he gets the token vote in an unappealing contest. Island Villa has a shout on his third at Thurles back in November while Mon Carlos will have come on for a recent reappearance and wasn't beaten far in better company last season. Icelip may be capable of better than we've seen so far now handicapping for the first time.
