Piet Mondrian and Calibrate both make their handicap debuts after impressing in maidens but the former faces a very difficult task with his big weight and the latter would be happier with some give in the ground. Majestic Jasmine has been a shining light in an otherwise forgettable campaign for John Oxx and completed a hat-trick here a month ago. However, she was less than 2l in front of Strandfield Lady at Fairyhouse earlier and the latter will be 8lb better off here. DAYMOOMA was also behind in that event but is improving judged on her subsequent victory at Roscommon when she had Strandfield Lady behind and she could be good enough to land a very competitive handicap.
