Vast improvement needed to figure following six second-rate performances and looks vulnerable in this company.

Last of seven well beaten 6L behind It's Two O'Clock, the fourth race in a row the filly had trailed in behind the rest of the field. Out of form and hard to fancy.

Caught the eye when finishing second of 13 beaten 1¼L behind Art Of Unity here last month over 5f before finishing fifth of 14 beaten 3¼L at the start of the month. Worth a market check.

Epaulette filly is a half-sister to three winners, including 5f winner Aggression, improving with every appearance and one for the shortlist.

Third Reserve: Finished well beaten in three maiden races on soft and heavy turf so far. Others make more appeal on handicap debut.

Second Reserve: Signs of ability when fourth at Tipperary (5f, yielding) in August but well held since and probably best watched at present.

Betting

Forecast

Ar Saoirse (9/4), Snow Patch (7/2), Itschessnotchekers (9/2), Piper Bomb (7/1), Highly Approved (8/1), Dandy Sue (12/1), Take Action (14/1), La Novia (16/1), Downtown Diva (18/1), Taylor Velvet (20/1), Extremely (25/1), Ty Rock Brandy (33/1), In The Dip (33/1), Camacho Dancer (40/1), Let It Go Papa (50/1), Mrs Hitchcock (50/1), Alpine Queen (66/1), Cross Cover (N/A), Lucky Red (N/A), Sarah Kate (N/A), Lady Sonia (N/A)

Verdict

The early speed of Camacho Dancer and Etremely could set the race up for AR SAOIRSE who looked like he would appreciate a step up in trip when finishing 1¾L behind the well-thought of Art Of Unity when fourth of 13 in October. Snow Patch and Highly Approved can fill the minor honours.
