A bit disappointing overall but was unlucky in running in a Leopardstown handicap last week; remains capable of much better than she has shown and could contend here despite a bad draw.

Patchy maiden form and did better than the form would suggest when hampered on her handicap debut over 6f at Fairyhouse last Friday; no surprise of she did much better here.

Form & Verdict

Dual winner came back to form when narrowly beaten in a Sligo handicap in May; not at that level in a claimer at the same venue since; excellent 7lb claimer on board here and could be a factor on ground which suits.
