Late Rosebud is the only three-year-old filly in the line-up and her allowance will aid her cause but she's been a disappointment so far this season and may do better on softer ground. Tax Reform has been going well and though no match for Lady O Malley at Ballinrobe the winner landed a better race at Tipperary last week. PIET MONDRIAN is related to no less than eight winners and can keep up the family tradition. He's disappointed on both starts though they were in very testing conditions and tonight's better ground can see him making up for lost time. Vasanta Navaratri makes his belated racecourse debut and has to concede plenty of weight.
