Transformed on better ground when raised in trip for her handicap debut over C&D three weeks ago, patiently-ridden to lead late (runner-up Ask Cillian runs in Division 1); not fluent at times nine days later at Clonmel when just fair effort over shorter trip; needs to bounce back, return to this trip should suit.
