Not the easiest of races to fathom but a chance is taken on THEATRE PRINCESS, from a yard going very well and ridden by the experienced Mikey O'Connor. Strange Talk is another from an in-form stable and has the benefit of a recent victory at Dromahane while Most Chaste has won four times between the flags and arrives in winning form. Ballydague Lady beat Isourbell comfortably enough at Dromahane last month and should do so again while Annie Oscar at last got on the scoresheet with an impressive success at Durrow. Katie Do hasn't run since last May where she scored at Stradbally by 10l so she's an obvious threat if fit enough. Chestnut Friar was well beaten under Rules at Punchestown but had won between the flags previously and is one to note.
