More testing ground looks to be on the agenda for Gowran Park and, in that case, it may be best to side with LIGHTNING BOLTZ. Willie McCreery's colt put in a good shift for second place on soft ground at Galway in August. He looks primed to strike after a close third in Dundalk at the start of the month. Let Me Pass was a beaten favourite in second at Killarney when headed inside the final furlong of that extended mile contest. That was on yielding to soft ground which bodes well for him handling this tougher terrain. The drop back to seven furlongs could suit well. Jack Davison's Valour handled heavy ground when fourth at Galway last month and shouldn't be underestimated.

ROYAL BLEND is hard to oppose with an official rating of 90. She received a 7lb hike from the handicapper for finishing a reasonable fifth, without ever threatening, at 33/1 in a Listed race at Tipperary in early October. Whether she merits her new mark is open for discussion but on her two previous starts she took the runner-up berths in fillies' maidens at Leopardstown and Galway on heavy ground. Dylan Browne McMonagle was on board for both those runs and the 5lb claimer is booked again. Ones Are Wild finished in mid-division on debut at the Curragh and ought to step up on that. Dermot Weld takes the wraps off Free Eagle filly Riva who is worth a market check. Similar sentiments apply to newcomer Champion Green, a stablemate of Royal Blend.

Tricky fare. Preference is for the highest-rated horse COSMIC VEGA. Jessica Harrington's charge was fourth in a barrier trial at Dundalk won by subsequent Group One winner Thunder Moon. Cosmic Vega's racecourse debut went to plan when he justified favouritism on heavy ground in a Leopardstown maiden. He was keen when next pitched into Listed company at Tipperary but still finished fourth. Royal Blend, who was a place behind him, has the chance to boost the form in the preceding race on this card. Flying Visit is well versed on tough ground and has plenty of experience. He won by six lengths over a mile on very deep ground at Limerick last month, so is likely to be tough at the business end. The Aidan O'Brien pair are open to any amount of improvement, particularly Sandhurst who was third on debut at Leopardstown after suffering a less than clear passage.

ROCKET SCIENCE was far from disgraced when fifth at 50/1 in a Group 3 at Tipperary and will appreciate these conditions. She was also fourth in the same company over course and distance behind Champers Elysees in September. That form has to be taken very seriously considering Champers Elysees has cut a swathe through the ranks to win a Group One. This punishing ground will be right up In From The Cold's street and he has claims at a likely price. The form of his last outing when runner-up on heavy ground behind a good winner can be marked up as the third home delivered in Naas on Sunday. Gavin Ryan is hunting down the apprentice title and Miss Myers could give him a decent spin. Her close fourth in a valuable fillies' handicap at Navan this month reads well.
