John Oxx has a very strong hand here with DAWARIYA and Sinntani with preference for the former, who bounced back from a couple of moderate displays to finish a very good second behind Rock And Roll Kid at Leopardstown. Easy Down Royal winner Sinntani is better than he showed at Fairyhouse last time while Do The Bosanova created something of a surprise at Gowran last week and has scope for further improvement. Elusive Ridge, who was behind the selection at Leopardstown, looks best of the older horses though Waydownsouth takes a big drop in class on his Polytrack debut.
