Chillie Billie just got the better of Battleroftheboyne over the course and distance last month with Calling You and PIXIE SPIRIT both finishing strongly into the minor places. The latter appeared to continue his progress with a very good run at Naas, when Indigo Iris was behind, and is still well enough treated to gain his first success. Pierre D'Or doesn't win very often but has dropped to a fair mark as a consequence and ran his best race for some time at Gowran a couple of weeks ago. Big Bad Lily has been finding the ground too quick and connections will be hoping for some rain but Above The Law struck form around this time a year ago where a victory over track and trip were amongst his successes.
