Jim Bolger has ben unable to get a race out of MUILEATA but this looks her chance on her first start over the trip. She's rarely beaten far and her best run came over slightly shorter at the Curragh from tonight's mark. Byron Beauty makes a quick reappearance after her defeat by Hangar Five at Ballinrobe on Tuesday. That was on ground with some give over further so she may not have the pace of the selection. Mr Snagsby started favourite here a fortnight ago but didn't enjoy the soft ground and is better judged on his earlier effort here a week earlier. Cottesloe has won twice at Dundalk but his best effort on Turf came over this course and distance last summer so he's not out of this.
