Yet to win in Listed company, but has handled herself well at this level, going closest when beaten a short-head at Pontefract over this trip in June. Interesting runner.

€35,000 yearling, Born To Sea filly, dam was a once-raced half-sister to smart two-year-old 1m winner Foundation. Winner of a Roscommon maiden over this trip earlier this month. Needs to improve once again stepping up in class.

Possibly needed the run when finishing fifth of seven at Gowran Park in a listed contest in May. Market probably the best guide following another break.

Comes here chasing a hat-trick of wins following success at Tramore last month over 2m and back in May over this trip at Roscommon. Tough ask in this company but in good form.

Off for a year before her reappearance here last month, and shaped as if her ability is intact when second to Wicklow Brave. Disappointed over this trip last time out and has been well beaten at this level previously.

Course winner that has also won over the trip. Conditions in her favour here and is not completely ruled out but has a couple of below-par runs to shake off.

Distance winner who won at the festival last month in a 1m6f handicap on yielding ground beating 15 rivals ¾L. Major player if taking the step up in class in her stride.

Winner over this trip at Listowel on Friday, going away to win by 8½L to demolish the 14-runner field. Another bold show is very likely here.

Lightly-raced filly who won two of her three starts at the beginning of her career including a win in a Tipperary listed contest 12-months ago. Beaten since when highly tried, should be more at home here.

Won a 1m2f Roscommon maiden getting off the mark at the fourth time of asking for connections beating Baby Pink earlier in the month. Improving sort who is entitled to be shortlisted here.

Lightly raced filly having had just three starts and huge improvement at Gowran Park when a strong finishing third to Snowy Winter last month. Better than her latest effort earlier this month and could be suited by step up in trip.

Betting

Forecast

Princess Yaiza (7/4), Romiyna (6/1), Rovetta (6/1), Alwaysandforever (7/1), Dynabee (8/1), Baby Pink (10/1), Ballet Shoes (12/1), Echo Park (12/1), Morga (16/1), Bongiorno (20/1), Erin (25/1), High Language (33/1), Like An Open Book (33/1), Remarkable Lady (33/1), Gasta (33/1), Flicker Flame (50/1)

Verdict

British-raider ALWAYSANDFOREVER from the Luca Cumani-yard found Lah Ti Dar too hot to handle at York last time out but can land the spoils here in a much weaker Listed event here. Stiff competition should come from the talented filly Princess Yaiza who has been running well in defeat of late and Dynabee from the Joseph O'Brien yard. The race will come as a big test to Ballet Shoes who was only beaten 2¾L in the Group 3 Snow Fairy fillies stakes at Leopardstown in May and Romiyna last seen in the Group 1 Irish Oaks in July.
