Form & Verdict

Highly tried this season; three wins during a very busy campaign have included one in this grade at Thurles in December; ran as well as could have been expected when third behind two Willie Mullins-trained mares in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse last month; unplaced in a Leopardstown handicap last time; 132-rated mare sets the standard here on overall form.

Form & Verdict

Showed she had matured since an initial run last May when winning a 2m5f maiden at Tramore in December; could make little impression when taking a sharp rise in class in a Grade 2 contest at Limerick; hard to assess, but this is more realistic at least.

Still a maiden chaser after six attempts but made a very encouraging seasonal debut at Galway (2m6f, heavy) three weeks ago, keeping on well from the rear for third; shapes as though stamina is her strong suit, so today's test could be ideal.

Bumper winner has been consistent since sent over hurdles, though no sense of progression since her second to the useful Party Central at the Listowel festival; others better suited by the race-conditions.

13/8 Lunar Display, 5/1 Ailie Rose, 4/1 Brampton Belle, 12/1 Broomfield Hall, 10/1 Must Be Obeyed, 11/2 My Design, 5/1 Rock On Cassie

Verdict

Best of these on overall form is LUNAR DISPLAY who has won in this grade, albeit in a fairly weak race at Thurles, and is basically dependable. One slight doubt is based on the fact that this will be her tenth run since October. Place claims are held by the improving My Design and the relatively unexposed pair Brampton Belle and Rock On Cassie. [Alan Sweetman]
