Form & Verdict

Big step forward from her first two starts when winning a fillies' maiden at Dundalk in November; however, didn't build on that when stepped up to 1m latest and not certain to see out this extra two furlongs; dropped 1lb.

Form & Verdict

Looked green on debut but improved to win a Tipperary maiden second time out, despite missing the break slightly; extra furlong will be fine but the form hasn't worked out too well and the handicapper hasn't missed him with an opening mark of 86.

Soundly beaten at Newcastle on New Year's Day but that was his first crack at 2m and he failed to settle; prior to that he stayed on for third over 1m4f here and today's trip could prove ideal; possible player.

0-7; good run when second in a Curragh handicap on last start in October; 4lb rise isn't ideal but seems highly likely to improve over this new trip given her pedigree; yard won this last year.
