This won't take much winning and Francis Street and After Dark have won their last starts between the flags so shouldn't be dismissed. Daisyannabelle makes a quick reappearance after a poor effort at Thurles on Thursday though that could have been a blip as her earlier form would give her an outstanding chance in this lower class maiden. Slaney Conflict and Status Update have shown a little ability but THE FLYING DOC looks the one to be on. She didn't show much on her only start over timber but improved on her latest run in a bumper and with her rider using his claim she can take what is a moderate affair.
