Lightly raced for her age SMALL BIT OF LOVE could well be improving enough to defy a 6lb higher mark than when winning comfortably at Ballinrobe last time. Mandamus could get closer to her today while Persian Lion is an intriguing contender. [Tyrone Molloy]

Three solid efforts in maidens, the best of which was at the Curragh last time over 1m4f when just lacking a change of gear late on; taking on some hardened campaigners but the step up in trip could bring about more improvement; intriguing.

Twice a winner on the Flat and a fair fourth in a 1m4f handicap at the Curragh two starts ago; beaten a long way in a very competitive affair at Galway last time; is better than that but needs to bounce back to his best.

Last win on the Flat was just over a year ago at Fairyhouse off 82 but then ran well in a premier handicap here off 88; not so good on softer ground afterwards including over hurdles; coming off a break and market may be a guide as to expectations.

Impressive performance at Bellewstown (2m1f) two starts ago when winning by a wide margin but, up 9lb, couldn't repeat the trick over 1m4f at the Curragh last time; same mark now and longer trip needs to work the oracle again.
