OR:

Form & Verdict
Walk In The Park mare, second in both her point-to-points and again found one too good in a pair of bumper attempts, the first in a mares' event at this venue at Christmas, staying on well as if a greater test would suit; no match for the highly regarded Maughreen at Punchestown.
