Kentra gained her first success since arriving from France when landing a Tipperary claimer and is on a decent mark as is Susiescot, who is 2lb lower than her last winning mark on this track last August. She could do with plenty more rain while it was heavy ground when Fulminata won at Listowel last month, just three days after scoring there on soft going. The latter is now 10lb higher and this is much tougher while Aidan O'Brien has resorted to blinkers for Waver, who hasn't quite been getting there. Iron Major's best form is on quicker going than he's likely to face here so a chance is taken with PROGENITOR, three times a winner on Polytrack for David Lanigan in the UK and well supported when hating the heavy going at Listowel on his first start for new connections.
