New Magic had dropped to a lowly mark when getting back on the winning trail at Gowran and is just 4lb higher. No Trimmings took advantage of very testing conditions at Leopardstown last week so she could do with the heavens opening while Rock On Ciara gained reward for her consistency with a hard fought victory at Listowel. Moscow Treat has really found her form and looks a major threat from her position in this handicap but it's the younger generation who look to have the call. Shock Naas winner Suzette De Bavay, another Naas maiden winner I'm Sheikra, and Jessica Harrington's ONE FINE DAY, an impressive maiden winner on testing ground at Listowel, all have plenty of scope and it's the latter who gets the vote to follow up.
