An expected big run from Cootamundra in the previous race will point to the chances of AZTEC PEARL here as she finished just in front of him when third in a much better class race at Punchestown. Winning point-to-pointer Flamingos Gold loks a threat as she produced a decent effort behind Special Token at Clonmel while Carrigeen Eile, a recent winner between the flags at Monksgrange, is bred to be useful on the level. Glancing was a little disappointing at Gowran after a fine introduction at Bellewstown but Benefit Scheme did very well to finish a close second to Cheer Up over timber at Thurles and must be considered on her return to the level.
