Bennys Girl hasn't had much racing and showed that she'd be winning soon when a close third to Duty Dance at Punchestown. This longer trip should suit and she's one for the shortlist as is Sarah Battle, who was just in front of her and was also staying on nicely. Drive On Locky had been in very good form before making a bad mistake and pulling up at Thurles. Spiker The Biker has had 32 starts under Rules without winning so can hardly be seriously considered though he's been in decent form recently. He was just behind VINNIE TRENTA when they occupied the places at Navan a couple of weeks ago and the latter, who attempted to make all but was caught by a well handicapped winner, is taken to go one better.
