MEASUREOFMYDREAMS was purchased for 65,000 euros after landing a point-to-point last March and though beaten by shock winner Victoria Hill at Thurles in January gave notice that he'd be winning soon and this looks a good opportunity. The Herds Garden has performed with credit in some strong events and should get into the frame again but Ballychorus has disappointed when well supported on her last two starts and will need to do better. Sub Lieutenant showed up nicely in both starts last April and should do well this season, though he's in the same ownership as the selection. Robert Tyner has his horses going well so Bellharbour points winner Capital Pursuit is one to keep an eye on.
