9/4

Declaration Of War filly was off the mark on second start over 5f at the Curragh (good) a week ago and should be capable of better still.

8/11

Mastercraftsman filly won over C&D 20 days ago on debut, beating Actress into second spot. An exciting prospect, there should be plenty more to come.

Finished 6¼L behind Actress on debut over 5f at the Curragh last week, can improve but has plenty work to successfully bridge that gap now.

8/1

Pivotal filly who cost €36,000 as a yearling, she made a fine start over 5f here in March winning her maiden (soft to heavy) by more than 2L.

Third behind Alpha Centauri and Actress on debut over C&D at the start of the month, should improve for that effort but those rivals once more may be holding the aces.

Forecast

Alpha Centauri (8/11), Actress (9/4), Gasta (7/1), Shapes (8/1), Moonlight Bay (8/1), Camacho Dancer (66/1)

Verdict

There didn't appear to be any fluke about the way in which ALPHA CENTAURI defeated Actress here on debut. The latter has since come out and won over 5f at the Curragh but there is no reason to abandon the Harrington runner for now, with likely improvement forthcoming from her too. Moonlight Bay is another likely to improve having her maiden here over 5f while the newcomer Gasta is respected given her trainer elects to start in this company.
  1. Alpha Centauri
  2. Actress
  3. Moonlight Bay
