Fleeting Moment gained his only success on the Flat on Polytrack and has gone 27 starts on Turf without winning. Crystal Wings has come into his own on heavy ground on his two latest starts where he's been staying on strongly over 7f. If the rains arrive he would have a chance second to none while Daisy Mountain is well enough treated to add to her only success to date with Joseph O'Brien an eye-catching booking. The latter holds Vasoni on their run at Tipperary in August but it's time THREE BELLS was winning and this looks his chance. He's been showing good pace over shorter trips but has no problems with today's distance having finished a close third at Bellewstown in August.
