Cluin Aine showed potential on her debut here last May but hasn't been seen since a decent effort in a Curragh maiden the following month. She should go well if fully wound up but it's Tommy Stack who holds the key to this. CLANCY AVENUE, runner-up in a Down Royal nursery in September, ran really well for a long way in the Tattersalls Millions over 7f at Newmarket and can overcome a poor draw. Stablemate Muizenberg Nights looked a certain future winner when runner-up over the track and trip last month but didn't make the expected progress when sent over an extra furlong a week later. Connacht Council takes a drop in trip after racing over a mile on his two starts to date and has shown enough pace to get involved while Kiss Goodnight made a reasonable start here in November and is bred to be a better three-year-old.
