Ran twice last August; beaten favourite over 6f at the Curragh on debut, finishing seventh of 19 in a maiden that involved subsequent stakes winners American Sonja, Ocean Jewel and Lord Massusus; second over 5f at this venue 12 days later; blinkered now; obvious chance.

Form & Verdict

Shamardal half-brother to trainer's 1m2f Group 3 winner Piz Badile; ran twice at two; looked a bit quirky when a promising fourth on debut over 6f at the Curragh; reversed form with the winner of that race when runner-up to Little Big Bear in the Anglesey Stakes over 6f and sixty-three yards; clear pick on form, shorter trip and length of absence are concerns.

Only one win last term but was a consistent performer throughout the season; made a pleasing comeback when fifth of 21 over C&D; failed to reproduce that form in a Navan race in which Loma Larnee and Sevensees were placed (met some interference from a loose horse), and should not be ruled out.

Only one win last term but was a consistent performer throughout the season and her success came over the extended 5f on yielding ground here in October with several of these rivals behind; big chance given normal improvement from a pleasing comeback at the Curragh last Saturday.
