Some disappointing types here, including Born To Excel, who has been a beaten favourite on his last two outings, so it would be no great shock if Jim Bolger's newcomer Inis Meain were to make a winning start to his career. KEY SECURE is a half-sister to Refuse To Bend and Media Puzzle so has a lot to live up to. She made a fair debut behind the odds-on Romie's Kastett at Gowran two weeks ago and can go one better. Scots Gaelic was a 66/1 chance when beaten a short-head by The Silver Crown at Bellewstown, a massive improvement on his opening run. Normal progress should see him involved while Total Reality didn't take to polytrack last time after showing much better form on turf. Midnight Soprano is another with a chance in an open contest as she has produced two fine efforts in decent maiden at Leopardstown, both over 1m4f, and she may be better suited by today's trip.
