Point The Toes has won twice over the C&D on fast and testing going. She was a big disappointment at Sligo in May and has been given a break. Dearest Girl is still a maiden but that should be put right soon if her latest run behind Cuteasafox at Limerick can be replicated. She's been left on the same mark and looks certain to get into the mix. Misty Weather followed her maiden success on fast ground at Wexford with a poor run on softer going at Roscommon so this is best left to HEAVENLY CHORUS. A regular winner in the UK for Keith Reveley, she was having just her second start for new connections when an excellent close third to Shadow Eile in a better race than this at Galway and arrives here on a very lenient mark. Willies Girl returns after a very long break but is very well treated on her form over fences and is one to keep an eye on in the betting.
