This doesn't looks a strong Listed contest but Snow Queen will be fancied despite the fact both of her victories have come on heavy ground. She did better on good going in a Group 3 at Fairyhouse won by Fiesolana last time but could do with some rain. Stablemate Hanky Panky was also behind that winner at Leopardstown last month when BOSTON ROCKER was just in front and it's Eddie Lynam's filly who gets the nod. She's since finished a good third behind the classy Sea Siren at Fairyhouse and still looks to be progressing. Minalisa arrives from the UK and has been in fine form on fast going but she has a bit to find and fellow traveller Miss Lahar looks more of a threat as she's been running consistently well at this sort of level.
