As in the first division, the market could prove a strong guide with Noel Meade's newcomer Daring Decoy definitely one to note with Nina Carberry doing the steering. KNIGHTSONE finished tailed off on his debut in heavy conditions but showed the benefit with a much improved effort on fast going at Punchestown last month and normal progress can see him home. Bridgequarter Girl had shown little before a close third behind Rough Justice at Clonmel and she's likely to improve again.
