Raven's Pass filly is a half-sister to three winners, including smart 1m2f winner Dark Red. Could be useful and yard capable of having her ready to roll.

Didn't make any great impression in two starts so far, latest when beating only one home in 7f maiden at Dundalk (AW) 112 days ago. Plenty more needed on return up in trip.

Approve filly, picked up for just €1000 as a yearling, she's a half-sister to three winners and should have a bit of speed about her. May learn from this.

Sent off 40/1 on debut here a fortnight ago over 7f on heavy ground and did well enough to finish fourth of 10 having missed the kick, could be more to come from here with this extra test of stamina.

Learning in each of three starts, latest being a 4¼ lengths sixth of 10 behind Mary Tudor in 1m2f Listed race at Navan last month. That sets the standard amongst those that have run.

Sent off an unwanted 66/1 chance on debut over 1m at Dundalk on the AW 16 days ago and didn't outrun her price. Tongue strap added and likely holding similar perch in the market.

Betting

Forecast

Imrana (9/4), Written Word (5/2), City Ballerina (7/2), Dynabee (8/1), Mazzuri (12/1), Kashika (14/1), Peace Approved (20/1), Vocal Queen (25/1), Departures (66/1), Yo Tambien (66/1), Military Dress (66/1)

Verdict

WRITTEN WORD is taken to score on the evidence of her fine effort in a Listed race at Navan last time out, she can put that experience to good use now and it sets her apart from those that have run already. Of course, there could be something above average lurking amongst the newcomers, with the Weld duo Imrana and Kashika of obvious interest and Mazzuri joining them. City Ballerina is a potential improver that could have a say.
