Noted flashing tail at Navan on nursery bow but ran (on) well; she's noted; top young rider; may not want soft.

Form & Verdict

Seems ground-versatile; notably only 17-2 in 23-runner maiden here between nice runs at Naas and here; latest sales-race fourth would suggest mark if 75 fine but that looked a weak renewal; really likeable how he stayed on then so trip better now.

Was 4th in a valuable Curragh sales race before just denied on nursery debut at the same track; up in trip today and handles soft but it would be a surprise if he was good enough to take this.

Sligo nursery form working out really well and might well have won but for lack of experience (well-clear of third); 4lb rise seems light; might be best on soft; the one to beat arguably.

Ran well here last year and this lightly raced 3yo came readily clear to win a heavy-ground Cork handicap over this trip three weeks ago; could be progressive enough to cope with the 6lb rise.

Respectable form in turf nurseries, invariably putting in her best work at the finish of races at 7f and around 1m; adapted well to this surface when a smooth winner of a 7f claimer here at the beginning of the month; more on her plate now.

Glimpses of form last year included Navan nursery third to Glamorously when blinkered; gets a huge turnaround in the weights with that rival here and having been gelded could begin this term on a favourable mark although blinkers left off.
