Champagne Or Water makes a quick reappearance after finishing runner-up to Alkasser at Cork on Saturday though she was beaten 6l and may be better over another furlong. Stingy Jack was a 66/1 chance in that race and was beaten when slipping up. Kernoff finished runner-up in three autumn maidens at Dundalk, showing good pace in all but failing to quicken close home. He had around 3l to spare over Katie Hall in the latter of those events and should confirm the form. Space Velocity led for much of the way on heavy ground over Limerick's 7f track a fortnight ago and though likely to be suited by today's conditions dropping back so far in trip may not prove the best option. RIGHT FIRST has a speedy pedigree and though well beaten on her opening run over 6f at the Curragh in September should have gained considerable benefit and with her stable in good form she's taken to get off the mark. Full Steam Ahead ran well enough over the track and trip in September to be considered if ready after a break.
