Unexposed EPAULAWN showed improvement when a short-head second on his 331-days return at Fairyhouse last month. Out of a winning half-sister to Leger winner Arctic Cosmos, EPAULAWN presumably had setbacks earlier this year but his Fairyhouse return, when racing keenly, was a fine effort and he should cope with a 4lbs rise. Burning Lake is a dual winner but and while he has yet to win in nine all-weather starts, has been running consistently well at today's venue. Eglish is a five-time winner, four times at this course and three times over this distance, and has fallen down the ratings in recent times while previous CD winner Beleaguerment ran well at Bellewstown latest.
