Solid and genuine sort on the AW at Dundalk but the daughter of Dandy Man needs to raise her overall profile on turf to play a role in the closing stages here.

Forecast

Bigger And Better (4/1), Lord Rapscallion (9/2), Annabelle Rock (7/1), Never Rains (8/1), Syrena (8/1), Angels (8/1), Silver Service (9/1), Parkers Hill (9/1), Scream (14/1), La Derniere Fois (14/1), Outside Inside (14/1), Alfirak (14/1), Have A Nice Day (16/1), Time Stands Still (16/1), Oneiroi (20/1), Highly Approved (20/1), Castrogiovanni (25/1), Distant Mirage (28/1), Dandys Gold (33/1), Evasive Power (33/1), Able Jack (50/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken with the Joseph O'Brien-trained SYRENA who has had a solid and consistent season winning and running well in a number of efforts over the summer. The daughter of Gale Force Ten has the addition of the capable Shane Crosse in the saddle and can pounce late to get the better of the Tony Martin-trained Bigger And Better and the quickly turned out, Evasive Power, a close second at Wolverhampton on Saturday.
