Form & Verdict

Landed a heavy ground maiden at Bellewstown in April; didn't seem to see out the 1m6f when a close fifth in a competitive heat at the Curragh on Sunday; back out quickly and should be much more at home over this trip; will take some beating.

Season was cut short after winning the 1m4f Cork Derby (premier handicap) last June; was a very progressive mare up to that point; should be better for her recent run at Cork but has plenty to find at these weights.

Form & Verdict

Has come back in good form this season, going close in a Cork handicap and not spurning a winning opportunity in a maiden over 1m5f at Sligo; only 2lb higher here and has an obvious chance from the plum draw.

Both wins for Pat Fahy were over much longer trips; fair fourth in C&D claimer when last seen but that was 684 days ago so readily opposable; cheekpieces added to tongue-tie.
