10/1

Running well in defeat on her last three starts. Has an experience edge against many of these here but needs to up her game to be involved for win purposes.

Cheap purchase well beaten on debut at Dundalk towards the end of last year. Yard capable of improving these sorts but hard to fancy this filly on evidence to date.

Well beaten on debut at the Curragh when unfancied but there's a fair chance she will do better over this longer trip and she makes some appeal on pedigree.

Dream Ahead filly, cost 52,000 gns as a yearling. Ran with credit on debut at the Curragh last week in what looked a decent race. Likely to take a step forward from that here.

Improved from debut at Gowran to finish third of 14 at the Curragh last time out. Step up to this trip could see her in an even better light but she's been slowly away on both starts and needs to shirk that habit.

Some dirt winners in the pedigree but only limited promise shown on her Galway debut, although not knocked about, and may do better on this quicker ground. Not totally discounted.

Has run to a similar level on each of her three starts and just about sets the standard here. Beaten favourite last time but likely capable of progression for this yard.

Teofilo filly, half-sister to two winners. Dam a Listed winner and half-sister to a pattern level performer. Market should reveal plenty ahead of debut here.

Produced a much better effort in a Galway maiden last time out but this looks tougher and she has to prove she can cut it on this quicker ground.

Lethal Force filly, cost 15,500 gns as a foal and 40,000 gns as a yearling. Half-sister to three winners. Dam a winner and half-sister to a Group 1 winner. Eye-catching jockey booking and should go well.

Forecast

Minnie Haha (5/4), Intermedia (5/2), Luceita (11/2), Shareva (7/1), Uluru Park (8/1), Aishling's Secret (10/1), Moteo (12/1), Dream World (12/1), Warning Light (16/1), Cautious Approach (20/1), Lovely Is The Rose (25/1), Ciao (33/1)

Verdict

MINNIE HAHA sets a solid standard on form here and if Jessica Harrington has improved this filly from her latest run, she's likely to prove hard to beat. Luceita and Warning Light are both fascinating debutantes while the step up in trip should suit Intermedia.
