Jim Bolger won this last year with a three-year-old and though Vasanta Navaratri made a fair debut at Killarney he's the only one of the older generation in this race and the weight concession may prove beyond him. Both Like A Diamond and Imperial Plan made promising starts behind Balmont Belle over this track and trip and will have benefited from the experience but it's about time MISCHIEF N MAYHEM was winning and, as her best form was shown in her early starts on this track, she's handed the vote.
