SHADOW EILE was in very good heart on ground with plenty of give last summer and has continued to run well over timber, finishing a close second in a Grade 1 at the Punchestown Festival last month. He reverts to the Flat on a mark of 89 and can take this under Joseph O'Brien. The jockey's father runs course and distance winner Beach Of Falesa here and though she looks a bit high in the weights Ana O'Brien's 10lb claim should aid her cause. Rossvos had been in reasonable form over timber before a good run over 1m6f here last month but the main threat could come from Salam Alaykum, who won a course and distance handicap in July, though such has been his progress that he's now on a 16lb higher mark.
