Lucky Kitten went up a massive 14lb for his victory at Gowran in April and ran no sort of race when sent to Listowel last month. He's talented but may not be one to take a short price about and INDIAN ICON could have his measure. Dessie Hughes' charge won over 7f at Roscommon and looked to have his follow-up race over 1m2f at Leopardstown in the bag before faltering close home so this should be his trip and he can gain compensation. Luna Forest showed the benefit of her opening run at the Curragh with a smooth victory in a Bellewstown maiden. She'll need to improve again with her big weight but Megan Carberry's claim will help and she is an obvious threat. Capitol Hill found 1m4f beyond him at Wexford last week after scoring over this trip at Killarney.
