Fiesolana bids for a hat-trick having beaten Hanky Panky, Coolnagree and True Verdict at Leopardstown. Lily's Angel and Sentaril could also get involved, especially if the latter improves in first-time headgear. Hint Of A Tint came up short in the Sandringham at Ascot last time but has plenty of scope, although ALONG CAME CASEY makes most appeal in this. Dermot Weld's mare improved further on last season's progressive form when scoring by over four lengths in a Listed event at Leopardstown on her reappearance and there looks lots more to come from her this season.
