There doesn't look much strength in depth here so ASK VIC , who is related to several winners, can make a winning start with all the allowances. Dainty Diva comes out best of those with experience and she looked suited to stepping up to 2m2f at Sligo last time. Quinville Castle had looked very promising in his two opening runs and was made favourite for a Ballinrobe bumper in July but was never travelling and finished tailed off. That wasn't his form and he can bounce back while Fellow Indian showed some promise over 2m here last month and can improve.
