Elusive Express went up 5lb for her Bellewstown victory and couldn't quite cope when dropped to 7f at Roscommon. Whether she'll be suited by this longer trip is a matter of conjecture but it certainly won't bother WINDSOR PRIDE, who was only just held by House Limit over the course and distance last time and is just 1lb higher. Joseph O'Brien has been booked and Willie McCreery's charge can go one better. Emma Pavlova had been hurdling without much success before reverting to the Flat with a cracking effort at Gowran where she stayed on strongly over that mile but Gabh Mo Leithsceal has gone up in the weights again without winning and may find a couple too strong.
