FLIC FLAC was one of Dermot Weld's incredible haul of winners at Galway last week and this consistent and improving filly should follow up her easy victory from an 8lb higher mark. Dotada is going well though she's never won beyond 7f unlike Strandfield Lady, who is dropping back in trip after two victories here this season over 1m2f. Kate Greenaway could provide the main threat as she has been staying on at the end of her two recent runs over 7f here and has run very well previously over this trip.
