A low draw is a massive plus here over six furlongs at Dundalk and the market leader has the plumb stall in 1. Butterfly Island aims to go one better than she went on her second start when runner up at Leopardstown over seven furlongs. I’m not overly convinced 6 furlongs is her trip but in a race as seemingly weak as this I don’t think it’ll be a major factor and the favourite should be be hard to topple.
It’s Snowing has been pretty consistent in two runs so far and it wouldn’t be the biggest shock to see her come out on top. The likeliest to pounce if the favourite falters.
At a price the Johnny Murtagh trained Fitzante may sneak a place but would need to improve on what she’s done to date.
