Shadow Eile made a fine start to her hurdling career with a double and produced her best effort when runner-up in a Listed contest over 2m2f here last month when today's rival Is Herself About was 19 lengths behind. She couldn't handle the step up to Grade 2 company at Leopardstown a week later and will find these more to her liking. SLIGO PUBLICAN had looked a very progressive type before a poor run at Limerick at Christmas which wasn't her form. She can bounce back and take this as she comfortably holds Chasing Shadows on her earlier victory at Clonmel.
