This has been run twice and a three-year-old scored last year. KERISA and Drifting Mist battled out the finish of an all-aged handicap at Sligo when the third was 3l behind. Both are entitled to make further progress and though the winner is 2lb worse off she's taken to confirm the form and complete a double. Levanto won a course and distance handicap under Johnny Murtagh in June and has been racing over shorter trips subsequently so she's a threat as is Kims Dream, seeking a four-timer and capable of another big effort despite a 7lb rise for beating subsequent winner Timjoe at Roscommon. Sheilas Wish had Something Graceful just behind at Wexford last week though the latter was a long way behind the selection at Sligo earlier.
