Form & Verdict

Largely consistent filly is a six-time winner over this trip and was runner-up in this last year; hasn't been at her best in four starts this year but there was more encouragement last week; is 6lb below her last winning mark so has to be feared.

Form & Verdict

Maiden has run well a number of times in defeat, including when a possibly unlucky loser over C&D last September; well beaten when 10lb out of the handicap latest but will be more competitive off her proper mark today.

Form & Verdict

Smart 2yo in UK last year, best run when 3rd in Group 2 Queen Mary over this trip; ran close to that form on third start for this yard when just touched off in a 5f premier handicap at the Curragh; same mark today and looks sure to go well from low draw; handles an ease.

Form & Verdict

Maiden after six starts but some solid runs in defeat, including over 7f here last year; decent return at Listowel and eased when saddle slipped last week; should cope with the drop in trip as she has early speed; considered.
