SHAKE THE TREE started odds-on for her racecourse debut at Wexford but lost all chance when she shied away from the tapes at the start. She'll know much more here and can ensure her trainer and record-breaking rider end the year in winning style. Kris Kindle was entered in Listed company at Navan after her two placed efforts and didn't disgrace herself so this drop in class should suit while Molly's Affair has shown some potential and will like the ground. Indian Fairy and Lilliputian have both shown enough ability to get into the mix and Our Pollyanna was going on nicely at the finish behind Drumlee at Thurles last month, her first start since April of last year.
