Had some of these behind when a closing third at Naas and came clear of the rest when going down by only a neck at Bellewstown (7.5f, heavy); nudged up 2lb for that but clearly a strong contender on ground she handles.

Form & Verdict

Never nearer than at the finish over 1m at Naas (cheekpieces; divided Tatum and Koniag) and it was back over 7f when beaten further in first-time blinkers at the Curragh, again running on; this trip is a better fit for her.

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.

Didn't enjoy the clearest of passages when close up behind Tatum and Pomeriggio in a Naas nursery a month ago (1m, good to yielding); should be a factor if he can handle the ground.

Beaten 11l+ in all four runs, latterly on nursery debut over this far at Naas (good to yielding); down just 3lb so wouldn't be the obvious answer unless heavy ground can bring him on (seemed to handle it okay on debut behind the smart Navy Seal).
