Form & Verdict

Improved from her sole 2yo run to finish third of 13 (beaten roughly 2l) in a fillies' maiden at the Curragh on return; couldn't build on that back at Leopardstown last time and unproven on softer ground but can't be ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Kept fairly busy as a juvenile and has shown she's trained on this term; was beaten roughly 4l on her first try at this trip when runner-up in a Bellewstown maiden last month; looks a bit more exposed than some of these; visor fitted on debut for new yard (bought for 26,000gns).

Form & Verdict

Very consistent filly who has hit the frame in each of her last five starts including her handicap debut last month at Galway; showed she handled testing ground that day and looks like a leading contender here.

Form & Verdict

Marked improvement from her debut to finish fourth at the Curragh in June (form that was boosted subsequently) and it was another step forward when runner-up in a Galway festival maiden 15 days ago; that was a good effort from the front and should be a major player if she handles these more testing conditions.

Verdict

There is every chance that Astar will run her race again and she proved that she can handle testing conditions at the Galway festival. However, DELICATE GIRL is narrowly preferred. She needs to prove that she can act in conditions but given her progression with each run, any further progress would make her hard to beat. [Phill Anderson]
