ROSE GARDEN didn't do too much wrong during the summer and with a chance to strengthen up she looks good enough to get off the mark. Dark Pulse was beaten a short-head here last month and had little chance when sent into Listed company a week later so this should be more to his liking. Miller Beach showed the benefit of his opening run with a much better effort at Gowran and comes into the reckoning as does Love And Cherish, who made a bright start on this track and didn't enjoy the soft ground at Leopardstown.
