Candy Apples couldn't handle the step-p to Listed company here last month after landing a Bellewstown nursery and will find this less testing. Fly To The Moon has also been racing in better company since her victory over the course and distance in July where she had Hilltown Gal almost four lengths behind. Victory Rich didn't stay 7f on soft ground at Sligo and will need to do better but LADY ULTRA looked a certain winner at this trip in a Gowran nursery last time only to be caught by Ruler Of France and the drop in distance can enable her to gain her first victory.
