Panama Hat was second off this mark over course and distance last week. Fairyhouse third Spring Focus is another three-year-old with decent claims while Madam Mo continues to run well and has been dropped a pound since her latest third at the Curragh. Pirate Cove has been a slow learner but she was second at Dundalk last month and there is probably more to come. BORONIA got squeezed out at Fairyhouse last week and is better than that result suggests. Her division was run in a faster time than the one in which San Gabriel also finished fourth so she gets the nod here.
