4/11

Yet to be out of the frame in six starts to date, landing a Limerick Bumper on debut and scoring over hurdles at Wexford in May, before winning Kilbeggan novice hurdle over 3m1f last month.

7/2

Didn't win quite as easily as was perhaps expected at Perth last time out but still got the job done, and may be the type that needs to be encouraged to show her best on the racecourse.

8/1

Fairly useful in Point-to-points, winning twice and she opened her account over hurdles at Tramore last time, winning by just under 5L over 2m5f, before something amiss last day when pulled-up in Kilbeggan novice hurdle over 3m1f.

50/1

Did better when staying on into midfield at Tramore, before being well beaten when falling in Wexford maiden hurdle last month.

Betting

Forecast

Miss Sapphire (4/11), Penny Jane (7/2), Kings Dolly (8/1), Jazz Mine (50/1)

Verdict
Difficult to see beyond the Elliott horse, Penny Jane, didn't win quite as easily as was perhaps expected at Perth last time out but still got the job done and the Willie Mullins-trained, MISS SAPPHIRE, who scored over hurdles at Wexford in May, before winning Kilbeggan novice hurdle over 3m1f last month.
  1. Miss Sapphire
  2. Penny Jane
  3. Kings Dolly
