Mollies Gent, who waers a first-time visor, has shown the occasional hint of promise but hasn't made progress and the four-year-old Idlewild ran poorly at Ballinrobe last month. Cebuano's second at Punchestown in October would be good enough but he's another who was well beaten last time. Dual Flat winner HOT PROSPECT has had his chances over timber and failed to strike but he hasn't been performing badly in handicaps and this looks his easiest task to date so gets the vote. That's A Fact was in touch when falling three out at Down Royal, his first sign of any ability.
