Form & Verdict

Won a maiden over this trip at Leopardstown on her second start, beating stablemate Andromeda who has since taken the same placing behind Shelaka at Tipperary; seemed to find 7f just a bit sharp last time, losing out by a head to the unbeaten A Lilac Rolla; should go close.

Form & Verdict

Half-sister to the top-class Alcohol Free; maiden win at Leopardstown and Listed third at Tipperary have both come on soft ground but should handle better going; champion jockey aboard for Aidan O'Brien.

Ballydoyle filly who ties in with Caught U Looking on penultimate effort but looks rather exposed now and record stands at 1-8; stable has a much stronger chance with Ylang Ylang.

Taking her racing well and posted a career-best here a fortnight ago when front-running third in Group 3 Weld Park Stakes over 7f; not sure that warrants her current mark of 105 and possibly vulnerable but should again be thereabouts.

Form & Verdict

Improved from debut fourth behind Opera Singer to finish third of eight in a 7f Galway maiden; surpassed that form with Group 2 third in the Debutante Stakes over 7f here last week; can be rated a leading contender despite maiden status.

Defied a market drift to win narrowly on her Tipperary debut (7.5f, soft) before disappointing when seemingly well fancied at 7-2 for a Group 3 at the Curragh; tongue-tie worn for both runs is now missing and she returns with her yard quiet.
