Dominetta Vitali, a winning point-to-pointer, has never raced over the minimum trip and may find it on the short side. Winning bumper Blue Bicycle hasn't shown much in two starts over timber but the lightly-raced Soul Train is an interesting entry from the Dermot Weld camp. It's hard to get away from the chance of SOME DRAMA, who has been running well against strong opposition in bumpers and over hurdles and should have the legs of these rivals.
