- 5f, Good to Firm (Watered)
- 6 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Unraced daughter of Bungle Inthejungle bought for €52,000 at the sales last September. Half-sister to a couple of winners and sire is doing well with his first crop.
Unraced Requinto filly out of a mare who was victorious four times over 1m4f. Likely to appreciate further in time.
Unraced Dark Angel filly cost connections €42,000 as a yearling last autumn. Half-sister to winner Royal Liberty and wears a hood on debut.
Has run well on both outings so far most recently when third of eight on turf debut at Yarmouth (5f, good-to-firm) last month. One to note in this contest.
Struggled in both starts to date including when beaten 5½L at Musselburgh (5f, good-to-firm) last time out. More needed if he's to take this.
Suffered interference when finishing seventh on debut at Newmarket (5f, good) last month. Likely to fare better on that effort on this occasion.
