Low numbers are generally best though last year's winner came from stall 12. MONAKOVA hasn't won yet but should be doing so in the near future and this looks a good opportunity. She didn't get the best of runs on her latest start over the C&D and was still less than a length behind the winner with Longfield Lad not too far away though holding every chance and the favourite Quinine another length back. Queen Of The Sand ran very well here last month though that was over 7f, which could be her trip but Moss Top showed very good pace before fading over 7f on soft ground at Leopardstown and tonight's track and trip could suit on her handicap debut.
