Form & Verdict

Late-starter quickly made up for lost time, winning twice on heavy ground last autumn and resumed winning ways on March return at Naas; hampered at start and found little when very disappointing favourite over C&D following month and has been absent since; down to her last winning mark with ground to suit and clearly runs well fresh so respected.

Won over 5f at Down Royal last July and her best run (3rd) since was back there; needs to show her best on AW debut.

Probably better at 5f than the 6f she ran over at the Curragh recently but that was still disappointing in finishing tailed off behind Sunday Sovereign; did go close at Down Royal the run before.

Form & Verdict

Narrowly beaten over C&D in August before first win in nearly three years when scoring at Newcastle in August; disappointing twice since however, including here over 5f last month from unfavourable low draw; much better draw here and drops in grade.

Went very close twice in a row before ending a long losing run with a Racing League win at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) a fortnight ago; this bang-in-form Irish challenger is a solid contender up 6lb for last time.
