Doing his best work late on when finishing 2¾L sixth of 12 over 1m on debut at Gowran Park (soft-to-heavy). One to note with this step up in trip likely to suit.

Slowly away and well beaten seventh when making his debut over this trip at Navan (yielding-to-soft) a month ago. Likely capable of better.

Stepped up markedly on previous efforts when finishing fifth over 1m at Leopardstown (heavy) last month. Interesting to see how he fares stepping up in trip.

Placed on her first two starts and contested a Group 1 subsequently. Interesting runner on her return to turf having disappointed in first time blinkers (absent here) at Dundalk on her final outing at two.

Limited signs of ability when eighth on debut over 7f at Dundalk last August. Absent since and others make more appeal stepping up in trip.

Decent effort in finishing fifth over 1m at The Curragh (heavy) on debut recently. Step up in distance likely to suit in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

Active Approach (5/2), Sheberghan (3/1), Indie Groove (3/1), Silvretta Schwarz (9/2), Valkenburg (6/1), Maunganui (25/1), New York Lady (50/1)

Verdict

INDIE GROOVE shaped as if this step up in trip would suit when making her debut recently and he is taken to break his maiden at the second time of asking in the final race on the card. Trainer Ger Lyons is in good form at present (8/39) and his charge can get the better of Active Approach who should appreciate the return to turf on her seasonal debut while Silvretta Schwarz can finish third with the step up in distance in her favour.
