Sole win was off 72 in a Curragh handicap in 2022; career-best when 5l runner-up in this race last year; not disgraced as a 150-1 chance at Cork 12 days ago; another good run not out of the question, but she is the lowest-rated runner.

Went down with a spirited effort behind Red Riding Hood (Group 2 fifth on next start) over today's trip at Curragh, that on the back of fine effort when second at Saratoga; previous Longchamp winner is a solid performer at this level and the first-time cheekpieces won't need to bring about a whole lot more for her to earn a fourth career win.

Possibly had a tactical advantage by being ridden handily in York Listed contest (1m, good to firm) on seasonal debut, narrowly beating the held-up Queen For You and taking form figures to 411; not guaranteed to confirm those placings but looks a similarly interesting contender all the same, being an improving filly who is in notable hands (trainer won this race in 2018 and 2020); attractive credentials.

Decent filly goes best on testing ground, winning a Navan Listed and Saint-Cloud Group 3 last season in such conditions over this trip; is 3lb better off for a 3/4l beating by White Birch in the Group 3 Alleged Stakes on return, so there should be little between them today.

Verdict

Proven in soft ground, VILLAGE VOICE can go one better than when runner-up in a similar event here in July behind Jackie Oh, who was an unlucky loser in the Blandford Stakes last weekend. She is the choice of Shane Foley from Jessica Harrington’s three. Her improving stablemate Starry Heavens looks a danger, while course winner American Sonja is likely to give her running.
