NURPUR began with a fine second to the very useful Harasiya at Leopardstown but has been very disappointing subsequently. She certainly owes her supporters plenty after failing three times but hopefully this track will bring out the best in her and she's given another chance. Angela's Dream has come up against some decent opposition but has had enough chances and the main threats may come from the newcomers. Alazeya is a half-brother to the useful Alanza and this looks the right trip for her opening run while Morning With Ivan is the second foal of a mare who won over 7f as a juvenile so she should also be suited by the distance.
