Shattered Dream scored over fences at Down Royal before falling at Fairyhouse and may need a confidence booster back over timber. PACO JACK is better known as a chaser these days but he's run really well on his last two starts over timber and is well enough handicapped to take this. Monelissio had been running well in handicaps before landing a Down Royal maiden while Rating Queen is still capable of a big run from her lowly mark despite being in the veteran stage.
