Form & Verdict
Dual-purpose mare disappointed over fences in May but returned to the Flat with a fine effort at Fairyhouse; no match for that well-treated winner but unlikely to encounter one like that today and a player off the same mark.

J: Rob Hornby

T: Gavin Cromwell

Dual-purpose performer who has won a pair of 1m4f Flat handicaps this autumn; another good run when second in 1m6f Bath Listed race on heavy last month but she was beaten 7l; the shorter trip and the fact she's never run on AW are reasons to look elsewhere for win purposes.

T: Gavin Cromwell

Dual-purpose performer who has won on the Flat in three of her last five runs including when making all in a Class 2 handicap at Newmarket (1m4f) 11 days ago; now switches to a Listed event but that was a personal best last time and she seems fairly versatile regarding trip and ground; shortlisted.

Won at Ballinrobe (1m5f, good) in June and scored by 5l at Listowel (1m4f, soft to heavy) 16 days ago; this 5yo has gone up the weights and takes on some unexposed 3yos today, but it was a career best last time and this progressive Irish raider could be in the mix.

Won twice at Killarney last year up to 1m3f in varying ground conditions; was a long way below her best on return at Gowran in April and needs to put that behind her; Colin Keane aboard is a positive sign.
