Handled better ground well when landing Roscommon handicap over this trip a fortnight ago, seeing it out well; still improving filly with likely more to offer and one to consider off 5lb higher mark.

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.

Smart handicapper won at Gowran last year and runner-up five times, including this race and in competitive events at Curragh and Leopardstown; not at best both starts this term however, never landing a blow when favourite at former venue last month over 1m2f; more needed but yard in fine form.
