Progressive in maidens last season; handled heavy ground when beating Rathbranchurch at Bellewstown in September; finished behind Rathbranchurch on handicap debut at the Curragh, and that rival has the benefit of a recent run; has been gelded.

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.

Steady improver, not clearest of runs when close third (stablemate Keke second) at Down Royal latest; cheekpieces now fitted and softer ground to contend with but major claims.

Starspangledbanner filly is first foal of a 5f-6f winner, from family of yard's 6f Group 1 winner Slade Power; belated debut and appears the lesser likely of the Lynam trio so all the better for the experience.
