Kanes Pass wouldn't want the ground any faster for her reappearance but she's produced some strong form at around this mark since scoring at Galway in July. Morethanafeeling won three times last year but all over longer trips and he's likely to find this on the short side. LILY OF KENMARE won a Dundalk maiden in December and made her handicap and Turf debut at Leopardstown last month where she ran well enough to suggest she could be good enough here. Lord Jim is very well handicapped and if the going were to turn soft he'd be the one to be on.
