Form & Verdict

Readily landed a Leopardstown maiden in June and only found subsequent Debutante winner and Moyglare runner-up Agartha too good for her in the Silver Flash when last seen in July; holds entries in both 1000 Guineas and should be capable of going close here.

Won a 7f barrier trial here in August before failing to run to expectations over the same trip at Gowran; gelded after that, and came good again with a C&D maiden win last month; looks like a horse who could improve over further; possibly vulnerable under a penalty over this trip, but should not be far away.

Showed plenty of promise on her debut over 6f here in January before getting up late to beat a well-backed newcomer in a similar maiden here last week; has to improve substantially on ratings to be a factor but the step up in trip will suit and it would be surprising if there was not more to come.

Quite impressive debut winner of a C&D maiden in August and stepped up on that when a slightly unlucky in running third in a Leopardstown Group 2 in September; ran no race at all in the Star Appeal Stakes here in October; has a trio of Classic entries and a return to his Leopardstown form would give him a big chance here.
