Form & Verdict

Created a telling impression on debut when overcoming a slow start to win a Killarney maiden in very smart fashion; takes a jump in class here but the way in which she took care of business suggests she could have plenty more to offer; from the family of Derby winner Authorized, she should improve plenty.

Smart flat handicapper with three wins from only five starts, notably making all at Gowran last month; promising enough hurdles debut at Leopardstown last Christmas but took a heavy fall in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse afterwards, hopefully that hasn't affected her confidence; major player.

Showed cracking promise as a 2yo; won a Cork conditions event before finishing second in the Ballyhane and Beresford Stakes; didn't show much in first two runs this season but only beaten just shy of 3l in Irish Cambridgeshire last time; should improve for that and seems well treated here; chance.

Cork maiden winner last term where he beat Aikhal; only beaten two lengths in Group 3 company on next start but both runs this season have left him with questions to answer; has the rating to play a part and cheekpieces may eke out some improvement but will need to be at his best.
