Verdict

Not the easiest of races to sum up but a chance is taken with IS HERSELF ABOUT. She's yet to realise the potential shown when landing her first two races over timber but has had her sights lowered after running in a Thurles Listed contest and Paul Carberry is a very positive booking. Curvacious ploughed through the Gowran mud last month to gain an easy success in a maiden, though faces a stiff task with a big weight, but Lough Roe Lady should get into the mix as she appeared to find 2m4f testing her stamina last time after scoring over the minimum trip. Backinthere enters the fray in cracking form and an 8lb rise for her victory at Cork shouldn't prevent another big effort while the likes of recent Tramore winner Ballyquin Queen and the consistent Blazing Sonnet can also get involved.
