Confirmed the promise of her maiden form when winning a 7f handicap at Limerick earlier this month; 6lb rise demands a bit more but the return to further could yield improvement and she's one for the shortlist.

Had looked limited prior to a much improved run when winning at Killarney last time; 8lb rise looks about right but her hold-up style isn't well suited to this venue and she wasn't quickly away when winning last time.

Best run yet when beaten a neck at the Curragh last month, enjoying a step up in trip and the winner from that contest boosted the form here on Tuesday when winning a competitive handicap; 4lb rise may be lenient for that second and yard's runners warrant respect here; wide draw not ideal but there aren't many front runners in this and he may be able to get across.
