Osuileabhain was in the front rank for much of the way in the mile event won by Not Your Call last week and should be at peak fitness after two recent runs. Breenainthemycra was 5l behind and is unlikely to reverse the form while Lady Society was struggling on her debut when clipping the heels of one in front and unseating her rider. The remaining pair with experience have shown nothing so this can go to Eddie Lynam's newcomer SOFT POWER, who is a half-sister to the decent sprinter Empirical Power and other winners.
