Tongue tie only applied the last twice at Downpatrick; didn't need to dig too deep to win his maiden and was probably not seen to best effect when close up on handicap debut (soft); looks progressive and proven on undulating tracks; respected.

Best of her five maiden hurdle runs came against subsequent winner Nine Graces at Punchestown in February; below that in a Limerick handicap since and has plenty to find today.

Comfortably got off the mark in a 2m3f handicap here (good to yielding) and that was only her second run in a tongue-tie; up 8lb but looks progressive and there's stamina in her pedigree.

Placed in two bumpers last September; ordinary maiden hurdle form before availing of his opening mark when stepped up in trip for his handicap debut in a 2m5f contest at Limerick; 8lb rise does not seem unduly harsh for 12l win; same claimer aboard
