Sli Na Fiarana has only run at Dundalk and had to step up to 1m3f to lose her maiden tag so it's a surprise to see her back over this trip. Man Of Erin went up a massive 13lb for his victory at Naas last month but defied the extra with another convincing success at Fairyhouse. Both were over 7f but he should have no problems with the longer trip and even another big rise shouldn't prevent a bold bid for the hat-trick. Diamond Daze is very consistent and ran well behind Bendzoldan here last week but was earlier a couple of lengths behind ADAM'S RETURN on the track. Gerard O'Leary's charge was returning from a long break on that occasion but attracted good support and may just have found the heavy going against him. He can recoup losses in an open event in which Danick Of Time also looks well treated if able to transfer his Polytrack form to turf.
