Cinnin Oir has been in excellent heart all season and should go well though she may be just a couple of pounds high. Another three-year-old, Footprint, is also in good shape and she isn't too badly treated while Gagnant at last lost his maiden tag when dropping to this trip for the first time in a while at Roscommon. The tough and consistent HE'S GOT RHYTHM was just touched off by the in-form Miss Eze here earlier in the week and, as he can race from the same mark, can go one better. Talkin Kate and Historic Occasion can both go well in a tough race to call.
