Several of these are well exposed and will find difficulty winning. Pastiches has some decent bits of form but once again failed to quicken when runner-up to Surreal at Galway last week, though she should again take care of third-placed Fulminata. Mischief N Mayhem looked to have a good chance at Dundalk last Sunday and is another who can't find a finishing burst so this can go to SHES NO JOKE. Mark Fahey's filly ran well on her debut behind Scintillula at Leopardstown and showed enough improvement when narrowly beaten by Veronica Falls at Dundalk to suggest a race of this nature is within her capabilities.
