Form & Verdict
Won a Galway nursery in testing conditions last October and handled similar ground well on seasonal debut at Naas on Sunday when running a cracker from 12lb wrong in Madrid Handicap, making most when finishing second to a smart type despite getting a hefty bump inside final furlong; due for a 12lb rise in future events so quick reappearance here and brother won over this trip so good chance of staying.

Started off last season in terrific form, bolting up on heavy ground over this trip at Navan but handicapper had his measure after that; just fair comeback run at Naas over shorter trip when tongue tie tried; trip/ground to suit and can be expected to come on for that athough has 5l to find with Mr Rango.

Stoutly-bred filly showed a glimmer of promise in 1m maiden here on her 3yo debut and creditable third in handicap over 1m2f at Navan last time; beaten a long way there but winner was well-in and the ground conditions were extreme; every chance if she comes forward from that.

Showed it was a case of right horse, wrong day on Thurles debut (7s) when showing much more over 7f here (33s), seeming in need of 1m; that might make him the form horse and champion jockey takes over.
