Dancing Cosmos enjoyed a decent time of things on the Dundalk Polytrack over the winter for the Shanahan stable, notching two successes. Fitness is obviously assured but there has to be a concern that the filly has yet to score on grass. Swehan is another yet to oblige on Turf but rates a progressive sort with very little mileage on the clock for a four-year-old from a top northern yard. LORD FRANKLIN was tremendously consistent last term and shaped with definite promise on his Pontefract reappearance. He runs here off an unchanged mark and gets on really well with talented 3lb apprentice Jason Hart - the combination should give a very good account.
