Form & Verdict
Useful form; first run after nine months off at Limerick when second to Shecouldbeanything, staying on well in the finish; will go on improving and certainly has the ability to land one of these; looks almost sure to be in the mix, though doesn't have much to spare over Emily Roebling.
