Beaten five times last season without being overly progressive and was 3l away in first-time blinkers on her handicap debut the final time (7f); by Galileo so going beyond a mile for the first time may help.

Won a 1m4f handicap on heavy at Leopardstown in May; consistent in Group/Listed races at up to 1m6f since; cheekpieces tried now after fourth of ten in a 1m4f Listed race at Newmarket early last month.

Only win in ten came in a 1m4f handicap on reappearance but it's been Listed/Group races since then and ran as well as she was entitled to behind the classy Emily Dickinson over 1m6f last time at the Curragh (soft); assured stamina should come in very handy and probably the one to beat.

Made a winning debut over 1m at Dundalk despite running green before running creditably in a conditions event over the same trip; is bred to improve for the switch to turf and this trip, so is considered.

Standout effort thus far remains her second in a 1m Gowran maiden on second start; beaten double-digit lengths in 7f/1m1f maidens this season and now has a bit to prove with cheekpieces reached for.

Hard to take his Irish Derby entry seriously but he's run well in both his starts, seeing out the 1m3f well when third in a soft-ground maiden at Limerick; this mark is no gift on that form but should have improvement in him.

Full-brother to a Group 3-placed horse in Germany and has improved in each of his runs, latterly keeping on for fourth over Gowran's extended 1m1f (soft); that could provide a platform for something better again now running in his first handicap over a longer trip.

Encouraging third on the AW (1m) in November and probably significant that he got upset in the stalls before finishing tailed off in a 1m2f maiden at the Curragh three weeks ago (heavy); cheekpieces are now turned to and, potentially, this mark could be okay.
