Roheryn was pulled out of a race on Tuesday due to fast ground and this will suit her better. But she was receiving 5lb from Streetcar To Stars when beating that rival a nose in a Listed contest here last time and the runner-up, who has gone on to an easy victory at the Curragh, can take his revenge. CHANCE TO DANCE completed a double over this trip in June and has been racing over shorter subsequently including when landing a tough handicap here last month. He will have found a mile much too short at Naas last time and can get back to winning ways. Aidan O'Brien runs El Salvador and Eye Of The Storm and it's the latter, who will have no problems with the easier going, which looks the best of the pair.
