Form & Verdict

Travelled well before digging in to gain her breakthrough success in a 1m handicap at Gowran (yielding); up 5lb but the third has since won a maiden and returning to 1m2f is no big deal; should be in the thick of it.

Form & Verdict

Can't take his Irish Derby entry seriously but he shaped well in two maidens (1m/1m3f) and wasn't seen in the best light when a beaten favourite on his switch to handicaps at Leopardstown (1m4f, soft/heavy); good reason to believe he can step up on that effort, especially back in trip.

Had just the two runs for Donnacha O'Brien; signs of progress when a fading third behind Whisky On The Hill here 16 days ago and he's 9lb better off the winner, while this less taxing surface may also help him bridge the gap; respected.

Mild improvement in each of his qualifying runs, last time at Gowran (7f) finishing sixth of 15; bred for this far and could be a lively one on handicap debut.

Didn't look well handicapped on his maiden form and duly struggled when unfancied for his handicap debut at Naas (1m); this longer trip is likely to help on pedigree but has a lot to prove; has changed yards.

Form & Verdict

Promising second run in a Galway 7f maiden that worked out well; not really gone on from there, though dropping back to an extended 5f for her handicap debut here 16 days ago probably wasn't ideal; whether she'll stay this far remains to be seen.

C&D winner form 2lb lower last summer; tailed off after a tardy start on her return a fortnight ago and while she came from rear in her win here, such tactics are generally a tough ask over this C&D.

Winner at her local Sligo track last August, beating today's rival Redshore City over an extended 5f on soft ground; overall form is unconvincing; slowly away and never in contention over 7f at Cork on final start of the season.
