14/1

Won on French debut before being out of her depth when highly tried for different yard in the fall of last year. Worth a market check on track return.

Distance winner and landed a Ballinrobe maiden hurdle in April off the mark at the fourth attempt. Yard go well at this meeting and one for the shortlist here.

Well held in maiden hurdles and on handicap bow, but much improved when winning cosily at Fairyhouse in April before anther bold show when second of 16 at Cork last month. Capable of going well again of career high mark.

Distance winner and showed plenty of improvement last month in a Limerick maiden hurdle finishing second of 24 beaten just over 2L behind Big Bang Rosie before not disgraced over shorter trip at Listowel this month. Step up in trip a positive.

Last of seven in a Grade 2 hurdle at Leopardstown last December may have been aiming a little high but can go well here on handicap debut.

Generally well held since returning to the track following an 18-month break though could appreciate the step up in trip but others hold stronger profiles.

Back from a 420-day absence to win a couple of point-to-points this spring and shaped well on hurdling return at Fairyhouse when beaten 10L but failed to build on that run when disappointing at Punchestown last month.

Has shaped well on two hurdling starts at Fairyhouse and Down Royal last month in a handicap hurdle over 2m on good ground finishing fourth of 14 beaten 5¾L. Place claims in this company.

Beaten favourite last time out in a Clonmel maiden hurdle last month finishing a short-head behind the likable Blondes No More. Acts on the ground and capable of improvement here.

Signs of promise in bumpers in 2016 but well beaten since including on yard and handicap debut at Cork and when last seen in August. Others preferred.

Nothing of note in three career maiden hurdle starts and very little to be positive about in this company.

Betting

Forecast

Biddy The Boss (7/2), Victoria Bay (4/1), Our Rachael (11/2), Dorkas (8/1), Minnie Dahill (9/1), Cailean's Angel (9/1), Turanga Lilly (9/1), Flamingo's Court (10/1), Comehere Hi (12/1), Mega Mindy (14/1), Tin Town Liz (16/1), Make My Heart Fly (25/1), O'gradys Girl (50/1)

Verdict

Minnie Dahill and Flamingo's Court usually like to get on with things from the front and the early clip of both runners could set the race up nicely for TURANGA LILLY who can build on her 8L win at Ballinrobe in April. Biddy The Boss, stepping up in trip and Wexford maiden hurdle winner Flamingo's Court can give the selection the most to think about while the Tony Martin-trained Our Rachael deserves some attention.
  1. Turanga Lilly
