Ucanchoose gained the sixth victory of his career at Tipperary last time but he loves that track and some cut in the ground so may not be capable of following up. Runner-up EVER YOURS is still a maiden after a dozen starts but she's happy enough on this sort of ground and should take her revenge and finally gain her first victory. Pixie Spirit has been in fine form, though over longer trips and it was over 7f that she scored at Limerick so this may be on the short side. Rhians Hope started out over 1m3f and has gradually dropped down in distance though whether she's fast enough for this is another matter. The veteran Copper Dock rarely runs over the minimum these days and hasn't won since 2012 but he's dropped to such a lowly mark that he could get involved.
