Just one three-year-old has won this in six renewals but Wonderful will attract support with her penalty after her battling victory at Killarney on Tuesday. Aidan O'Brien's filly is progressing but this is much tougher though it's another of the younger generation, MODERN ROMANCE, who gets the vote in receipt of 6lb. Dermot Weld's filly is making her handicap debut but could have been let in lightly as she has scored on heavy ground and was having just her third career start when a close third to Kedleston at Leopardstown earlier this month. Balladiene and New Magic have been in fine form though both may now be in the handicapper's grip and the former was behind Cheval Rouge at Roscommon and the winner found 6f much too sharp at Fairyhouse a week ago.
