Dantes Firth has to concede weight all round due to his victory at Thurles last March but this shouldn't take much winning. Potential punters will need to ignore his poor run at Leopardstown, however, while the other winning bumper in the line-up, Railway Zira, has been given a break since a real flop at Galway in September. Shantilly has only shown moderate form so it's ULTRA LIGHT who gets the nod. This half-sister to Rubi Light didn't shown much on her opening run but was staying on nicely at the finish here last month and with further progress likely can gain her first success. After a fair opening run, Rosaflora hardly picked her feet up at Thurles in December and will need to do much better to get involved here.
