Form & Verdict

Well-related filly has run well on all three maiden starts; best effort when just denied at Bellewstown in August, the fifth and sixth home that day have won since; suited by some ease but will encounter much more testing conditions here; can go close if handling heavy ground.

Runner-up in two 1m4f maidens at the Curragh in October; rose to the occasion when highly tried in a Listed event at the same venue last time; overcame trouble in running to take third place behind two older rivals, including Group 1 winner Helvic Dream; all of her races have been on testing ground; should win readily if adapting to this surface.

Verdict

A group of four fillies with official ratings in the 72-77 range may find it hard to contain the less-exposed TIME TO TELL, a promising second on her debut over C&D. Hey Whatever has shown she handles heavy ground and may pose a greater threat than Alalcance who has yet to encounter really testing conditions. Diyaba can be competitive too. [Alan Sweetman]
