Off the mark at the seventh time of asking in a Limerick maiden over 1m before a 5L defeat when disappointing at Tipperary last month. Likely to face stiff opposition on handicap debut.

Solid and consistent in a number of starts on the AW at Dundalk and on turf more recently at the Curragh when finishing 4½L behind the Aiden O'Brien-trained Hence. Can continue improvement here.

Forecast

Check Your Pockets (9/4), Raphael (3/1), Mazzuri (7/2), Conclusion (4/1), House Call (13/2)

Verdict

The manner of her 3½L win last time out in a Tipperary 1m1f handicap last month put CHECK YOUR POCKETS firmly in the driving seat here to land the spoils in this competitive contest with the 7lb rise in the weights unlikely to halt the fillies progression. The Aiden O'Brien-trained Conclusion and the persistent Raphael can battle for the minors, while Mazzuri and House Call shouldn't be underestimated.
