Precious Dream looked a bright prospect when scoring twice in March but hasn't been seen since failing to stay a mile at Dundalk the following month. Redoutable reappeared to score over the C&D on soft ground and though not able to match that since she's been performing in better company. Strike Action won her maiden at Dundalk in good style and would be suited by today's ground turning faster though she's improving enough to get competitive. Ondeafears had Olfa behind when scoring over 7f on testing ground here in May and should confirm the form. Marc Monaghan's claim is a major plus and Michael Halford's mare should go well. KATEEVA scored over the C&D in June on soft going and a line through Battleoftheboyne, who has raced against both her and the in-form Stone's Peak recently, suggests she can come out on top in what is a very open handicap.
