This shouldn't take much winning and is a race where the market could prove reliable. Reflet Ambre hasn't shown much for Edward O'Grady since arriving from France but there should be more to come as he's related to numerous winners. THERIDDLEOFDUNEEN made a very encouraging debut over timber when narrowly beaten by Sharjah at Roscommon in August. She hasn't done so well on the Flat subsequently but this could be her game and she's given the nod. Cruisingdownriver was beaten a long way at Killarney but will have come on for the experience as will Bog War, who was even further behind but had been running very well at Dundalk.
