These look a very moderate bunch so it would be no surprise to se a winning debut from SIZING KIMBERLITE, who cost 62,000 euros as a three-year-old. She's by top NH stallion Flemensfirth out of a mare from the family of Cab On Target and will be expected to do well over jumps. Peinora won on the Flat in July but has shown little in her three starts over timber so Stop The Clock looks more of a threat as she showed a glimmer of potential in a strong Navan maiden last month. Kathleen Frances won three times on the level and though eventually well beaten on her hurdles bow over the C&D didn't perform badly and will have come on for the run.
