Joseph O'Brien had just one booked ride at the early stage, Street Party for Julie Cashin. The champion jockey rode him to victory over a shorter trip a fortnight ago and must believe he's capable of staying the extra. Shes No Joke was rated 75 when landing a maiden here and makes her handicap debut off 1lb lower. She has to be a threat while Carried looked ready to win soon when runner-up to Vote Of Confidence last month and Johnny Murtagh is a positive booking. Caged Lightning was having his first start over middle-distances when a fine second to That's Plenty three weeks ago but Traveller's Tales could have done without a 7lb rise for her narrow victory over Teajaybe. TIMJOE has been in good form for some time and gained his first success on the surface when beating tonight's rival Juara comfortably on Friday. A 5lb penalty looks manageable, especially with the excellent Colin Keane claiming 3lb, so a follow-up is expected.
