Cairdiuil won this last year though that was on very heavy ground and he's 10lb higher. Three Bells is still progressing but will need to be if he's to shrug off a 9lb rise for last month's victory at Bellewstown. The veteran Toufan Express won a minor event on the sand at Laytown and was due to run at Dundalk yesterday but a penalty for her victory at Clonmel on Thursday shouldn't pose a problem for FLAWLESS FILLY as she won with plenty in hand. She looks the one to be on though Star Links has gradually dropped in the ratings and can never be ruled out.
