6/1

Couple of close thirds on turf over 5f and 7f before possibly finding extended 1m beyond her last time. Two AW races not great so bit to prove on that front especially with top weight.

Showed some ability in last two maidens at Fairyhouse (seventh of 15) and Navan (fourth of 19). Not obviously well treated for handicap debut but if she handles this surface she could go well.

Improved with each run so far culminating in a 2¼L fourth of 10 at Down Royal where she looked ready for this extra 1f. Enters handicaps at the right time and merits respect here.

Tipperary winner wasn't beaten far into fourth over 7f here latest when just a little one paced. Gets 1lb back and now wears a tongue-tie so causes for optimism despite others appealing a little more.

Not really progressed as you might hope in three turf maidens to date with two eighths and a seventh to his name. Could have more to come however and jockey booking catches the eye.

Seventh and beaten 2¾L last time out on her handicap debut at Navan over 5f. Earlier stayed 6f and raced over 7f so return to this trip may suit and has 3lb back from the handicapper now.

Promise in first two handicaps at Cork and Naas and latest run here can be forgiven to some extent despite him finishing last given her got no sort of run in the straight. Certain to do better than that and has place claims here.

Good third at Cork in second start and far from disgraced next in a valuable auction contest at Naas (fifth of 16). Handicap mark looks potentially lenient based on that so has excellent claims here.

One of the more experienced runner and placed three times so far, albeit twice in claimers. Midfield here latest over 7f but handicap falls yet again so has place possibilities with drop in trip possibly a positive.

Promise in three turf maidens so handicap debut seventh of nine here was a little disappointing but it did come after a 104-day absence and over 5f so with hood now added there are several reasons to expect better this time.

Stepped back in trip with each race so far and does so again here after finishing 10th of 16 last time out at Leopardstown. Overall hard to be confident for handicap bow.

Only minor appeal in first three starts and behind several of these on handicap bow over 7f last time where she finished 12th. Likely needs further drop in handicaps to be competitive.

28-9OR: 55
5/1

Held up far from the pace and kept on for a remote sixth at Navan last time after a similar effort the time before at Cork. Not showed a huge amount but opening mark looks pretty kind so could well be involved.

28-4OR: 50

Fair sixth in a claimer on second start but almost tailed off last time out at Navan (16th of 19) in a maiden. Easy enough to pass over based on that. Second Reserve.

Forecast

Beau Warrior (5/1), She's My Dream (5/1), Commodus (6/1), Jarrocho (8/1), Gold Jasmine (8/1), Chernish (8/1), Imposing Supreme (12/1), Dottie Vallens (12/1), Olay Power (14/1), Sestriere (16/1), Ebony Belle (20/1), Espirit D'Escalier (20/1), Anyonecanbeasaint (25/1), Olwen's Dream (33/1), Guiding (50/1), Annabelle Rock (N/A), Cozy Sky (N/A)

Verdict

SHE'S MY DREAM ran with plenty of merit last time out in a valuable contest at Naas and this looks a good deal easier than that so off a fair opening handicap mark John Oxx's filly has a good opportunity here. Olay Power is rated a big danger with the possibility she needed her latest run after a break of over three months and a step up in trip and hood offer further positives. Of the first time handicappers Espirit D'Escalier appeals the most with a progressive profile and potential to improve again over 6f.
