Winning for the first time when successful over 5f at The Curragh (good-to-firm) last month. Fair effort off a mark of 93 at Navan (yielding) on handicap debut last time and has placed over this trip in the past.

Made a winning debut over 7f at The Curragh (yielding-to-soft) a month ago. Justified favouritism on that occasion and one to note as he bids to maintain his unbeaten record dropping in trip today.

Placed four times prior to winning over 5f at Down Royal (soft) last time out. Rated inferior to many of her rivals today and likely to appreciate any overnight rain.

Victorious off a mark of 73 over 6f at The Curragh (yielding-to-soft) last month. Held third off a 6lb higher mark subsequently and more needed if she's to take this.

Stepped up markedly on debut when winning over 7f at Roscommon (heavy) last time out. Steps up in class here and needs to improve if she's to register a second victory today.

Forecast

Gobi Desert (8/11), Fleet Review (5/2), Brick By Brick (5/1), Sometimesadiamond (6/1), Abamanova (15/2), Golden Spell (8/1), Sollertia (10/1), My Silver Nails (16/1), Damselfly (33/1)

Verdict

GOLDEN SPELL has won twice already and she can register her first success at this Level by taking a competitive renewal of this 6f contest. The selection drops in grade today and is taken to get the better of Fleet Review who represents leading connections in this. Sometimesadiamond, seeking her first victory since winning on debut can claim third dropping in trip and grade.
