Mindy has plenty to find on official ratings though she's only had four runs and is open to improvement. Maude Adams likes plenty of give in the ground and would be a threat if more rain arrives but she faces a stiff task against the three-year-olds. LADY O MALLEY was a very easy winner here before an even better performance in a Tipperary handicap on Thursday. She'll make a bold bid for the hat-trick and is just preferred to Granny On Fire, who followed a very easy victory over this track and trip with a moderate effort under a penalty over 1m4f at Tramore and looks too high in the ratings. Star Links came back to form at Ayr last time and a repeat performance would see him in the picture.
