A few of these have similar profiles with Mr Good Guy, Dark Skies, Wishyouwerehere and Caso Do Lago all well beaten after suffering a hike in the weights for victories at Dundalk. CHICLET has yet to win but is dropped in class after a fourth to Focus On Venice over track and trip and Tracey Collins' filly gets the nod to come out best. Artistic Integrity is one of the less exposed and should be thereabouts along with fellow handicap debutant Blueberry Gal.
