Hidden Oasis scored over 7f here in October before a fair run in a French Group Two a month later. He should do well this season though he's on a high enough mark for his reappearance. DUE DILIGENCE won on fast ground in the USA and made a very encouraging debut for Aidan O'Brien in a Listed race at Dundalk. He looked in need of the run and should have come on enough to take this before heading for better things. Kernoff had shown plenty of promise in his first season before making an impressive reappearance at Tipperary where he scored with plenty in hand. He had Champagne Or Water behind that day and the latter has since won in a canter at Sligo so the form looks strong. Miss Gally Rio has progressed with every run and, if the ground comes up heavy, she is likely to be in the mix on her handicap debut. Lady Mega is up 10lb for her victory on fast ground at the Curragh.
