Form & Verdict

Point-to-point winner for Colin Bowe; 0-7 over hurdles but still improving judged on recent second placings in 2m4f handicaps at Leopardstown (soft) and Navan, mistakes at final two flights proving costly second occasion; not a fluent jumper of hurdles but seemingly has her chance here back in maiden company.
