Maggie Dalton didn't appear to enjoy the step-up to 1m2f at Leopardstown after scoring over this trip at Limerick but now appears to be too high in the weights. Calibrate landed a Gowran maiden in August but hasn't run since beaten in a handicap the following month. Photo Call started favourite for a handicap here last month after her Fairyhouse maiden victory but never looked like winning so this can go to RAMONE. She's having her first start over this trip but was staying on strongly when just failing to catch Flic Flac over 7f at Leopardstown. The progressive Sea Coast and consistent Sretaw are others to consider in a race dominated by low weights.
