AFTERNOON SUNLIGHT is comfortably the pick on form and should have few problems losing her maiden tag. Her second to My Titania in a Leopardstown maiden last month was given a huge boost when the winner subsequently landed a Group 3. Jim Bolger has three entries with Kevin Manning on board Beyond Intensity, who found Listed company beyond her after a encouraging debut on this track. Dance With Another represents Ballydoyle and she showed the benefit of her opening run with a much better effort over 7f here and can improve again. Westpieser showed a bit of temperament on her debut at Roscommon but will have learned from the experience and can get involved.
