Invincible Spirit filly, struggled last year in pattern-company for Joseph O'Brien before running two below-par seasonal appearances for new connections. Improvement needed.
Deservedly won a Down Royal handicap over 7f last month following a number of solid starts this month to get off the mark at the 14th time of asking. Raised 6lb for her efforts and another bold show looks on the cards.
Appears to have made the step from three-year-old seamlessly with a couple of rock-solid performances this season including winning a Sligo handicap last month over 7f. Could be capable of having her say despite 3lb higher mark.
Deservedly got off the mark for the season following a couple of solid runs when landing a 1m handicap at Bellewstown on Thursday. Chances on quick return.
A winner of her third start, winning a maiden at Dundalk in May. Beaten since back on the turf in two visits to the Curragh. Looks up against it here.
Well held on two occasions following a win at Fairyhouse last month appearing to struggle off her new mark. May need more relief from the handicapper before consideration.
C&D winner here last month when landing a handicap on good to firm ground beating 13 rivals a neck with the improving Dance Alone in second. Well held since and may have to settle for a midfield position again.
