DEMURELY takes a big drop in class after her run in a Group 3 at Cork on Sunday and her earlier effort behind Montebel on the same track gives her the edge here. Jessie Jane started out with a close third behind Oaks winner Was at the Curragh in August and occupied the same spot in another strong maiden at Dundalk the following month. She hasn't been seen subsequently but should do well over this sort of trip this summer. Stablemate Precious Stone hasn't shown much in two runs at Leopardstown but she's by Galileo and is the type to do better. Faanan Aldaar was staying on over 1m2f at the Curragh last time and this trip should see her in a better light.
