Form & Verdict
Failed to progress in her three runs at two and tried a hood the final time; could make up into a better 3yo and makes sense to be guided by the market on her handicap debut.

Not progressive in three starts at two but made a winning handicap debut over C&D, still green but ultimately winning with some authority; out of the money when favourite for Sligo event in which Nostringsattached was third.

Not especially progressive at two but returned nicely improved to make winning handicap debut over just shy of this trip at Gowran last month, still green but ultimately winning with some authority (soft); 9lb rise understandable and looks as though she'll get further; stiffer task taking on her elders here.

Form & Verdict
Nothing exciting last season but was gelded ahead of his handicap debut at Dundalk (1m2f) and shaped better having been prominent in the betting; however, he was beaten 8l and this looks stronger; 1lb out of the weights.

Has contested turf handicaps in a higher grade than this since Dundalk third in April; second on soft ground at Sligo, out of the money on good going at Leopardstown, but he was running from out of the handicap in that 1m4f event; definite chance in this company.
