Long-priced Dundalk maiden winner on debut last winter; considerable improvement needed from handicap debut over 7f at this venue; better ground should help.

The form of her Dundalk maiden win last winter was franked since when the fourth placed filly won; interesting on turf bow, though is probably her yard's second-string.

Of little account for Richard Hannon last year; decent effort when a 4 3/4l runner-up in a C&D handicap on Irish debut, with older rivals Downforce, Gegenpressing and Rattletheonionbag among those behind; outstayed by today's rival Naisiun over 7f at Naas; can emerge best in rematch at this trip.

Potentially interesting on the form he showed in three runs at this venue for Dick Brabazon last season; plenty of merit in his sixth placings, notably in a 23-runner contest on his final start; may have found 5f too sharp on stable/seasonal debut at Navan.
