Yava made a belated debut behind Lean And Keen at Dundalk three weeks ago and did very well to finish third, just over two lengths in front of the dead-heaters Barbeque and Carla's Princess, who were also running for the first time - he should confirm the form. Madam Mo has had plenty of chances and has been tried at a variety of trips. She should win a race soon but it could be in a handicap off this lowly mark. DYNAMITE DIXIE has had lengthy spells on the sidelines but returned with a very good effort when attempting to concede Conan's Rock 8lb here a couple of weeks ago and is taken to go one better.
