Hellenistic has shown a glimmer of ability yet has to carry a big weight in this moderate affair. He was only just in front of Jackie Ellis here last time and the latter is 7lb better off so in theory should turn the tables. Tom Dooley has yet to win a race but his latest run at Leopardstown should be ignored as he hated the heavy ground. Meihua has surprisingly gone back up in the weights despite finishing only fifth here last month so it's THE BUTCHE'S FILLY who gets the nod. Martin Hassett's charge finished just in front of Meihua in that latter event where she kept going well when passed by three-race-fit rivals after attempting to make all.
