Sylvan Mist is having her 10th start, and her first on Turf. She's been in excellent form on Polytrack and a mark of 73 looks manageable. Her stablemate More Questions came good at Navan last weekend and has scope for further progress, though an 11lb rise won't help and PEGGY'S LEG can beat Eddie Lynam's pair. She's been steadily improving and followed a very good run over this trip at Navan with another cracking run there where she finished strongly over the minimum trip. Boom And Bloom has yet to win a race but has generally performed in better company.
