Shorter trip unlikely to hinder A Little Bit Me's follow-up bid

Fozzy Stack: hopeful of a big run from A Little Bit Me
1 of 1

6.55 Cork
Mallow Town Summer BBQ Evening July 14 Handicap | 5f | |3yo| ATR

An easy winner over six furlongs at the same track 13 days ago, the Fozzy Stack-trained A Little Bit Me drops to the minimum trip for the first time as she bids to follow up.
Raised 9lb for her three-and-a-quarter-length win, A Little Bit Me is again blinkered having raced in them for the first time on her most recent start.
Another tackling the distance for the first time is the Patrick Prendergast-trained Brave Display, who has been in good form recently, winning over six furlongs at Dundalk last month and finishing second on her two starts either side of her Polytrack win.
Ice Cold In Alex, who is making his reappearance, won over the trip at Dundalk on his final start last season.
Another with winning form over the distance is topweight Kocollada, who twice scored over the trip early last season when trained by Richard Fahey and who drops down in distance on his third start for Joe Murphy

What they say
Ken Condon, trainer of Ice Cold In Alex
He's been quite lightly raced but he finished off last season with a win over the trip. He seems well but I expect he'll improve for the run.
Patrick Prendergast, trainer of Brave Display
It will be tough for him as he's gone up in the ratings this year but he's in good form and I expect him to run well. Five furlongs is unknown territory for him but he showed plenty of toe when narrowly beaten over six last time. The ground should be fine for him.
Fozzy Stack, trainer of A Little Bit Me
She showed plenty of pace last time so the furlong shorter trip shouldn't inconvenience her. She's in good form and the ground will suit once it stays good or good to firm.
Andy Slattery, trainer of Eacharn
He seems well but we could do with some rain. It was a bit quick for him last time and they're calling it good to firm for this.
