Verdict

Kahsabelle has been in better form of late but she definitely needs it softer. Lucky Lukey could make the frame again and Street Runner won at Down Royal in August and can't be ignored. Cinevator and Dantari may also figure, despite their big weights, while O'Callaghan Strand is back over hurdles after losing his way over fences. Halucha could be well treated but Fergal O'Brien has his string firing on all cylinders and it may be worth taking a chance on the fitness of ACCORDINGTOEILEEN. She's only 3lb higher than when winning over this trip at Leicester a year ago and Timmy Murphy looks a significant jockey booking.
