- Happy Easter To All Our Patrons Fillies Maiden
- 1m 1f 162y, Soft
- 14 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Useful 100-rated handicap hurdler and showed plenty promise when making her Flat debut finishing third of 17 beaten 2¼L in a Gowran Park maiden earlier this month, keeping on well in the closing stages, grabbing a place in the process. More to come.
Oasis Dream filly who is a half-sister to the very useful Carntop. Not much to shout about in a couple of starts for trainer Ralph Beckett last spring. Market possibly the best guide on stable debut.
Filly by Zoffany out of an Aptitude mare. 15,000gns as a foal. Cost 15,000 as a foal. Half-sister to several winners, including Touch The Clouds, successful at up to 1m and 6f victor Finn's Rainbow. Yard going well, worth a market check.
Filly by Camelot out of a Selkirk mare. Well held on both starts to date, including a heavy 49L defeat at Navan last month. Plenty to prove at present.
£26,000 vendor yearling by Zoffany. Caught the eye on debut at Leopardstown. Dwelt and missed the start, in rear before making progress over 2f out and running on well to grab fourth spot in the final stages earlier this month. More to come.
Filly by Yeats out of a German bred mare. Six-race maiden including four defeats on turf. Encouraging fourth of 15 beaten 2¾L in a Cork maiden earlier this month. Place claims, but needs to find more consistency.
Finsceal Fior filly, half-sister to a winning sprinter and dam a half-sister to two middle distance winners. Yet to catch the imagination in a couple of below-par efforts since last month. Hard to fancy and plenty to prove.
Filly by Aussie Rules out of a Machiavellian mare. Looked a forward progressive sort on debut at Dundalk on the AW in February when keeping on well for pressure to finish third of 12 beaten 3¾L. Improvement expected.
Filly by Camelot out of a Daylami mare. Half-sister to Flat winners Hazapour, Harasave and 1m2f victor Harrana. Needs to improve om disappointing debut run at Naas when last seen in November.
By Garswood out of an Avonbridge mare. Sire has made a slow start to stallion career. Filly is yet to show any ability in two career starts to date including a heavy defeat at Navan last month. Easy to look elsewhere.
Beaten over 6L on each of her two career starts to date at Limerick and Leopardstown. Improvement will come in time and possibly best watched stepping up in trip here.
Filly by Born To Sea out of a Dynaformer mare. Nothing of note in four career starts to date and unlikely to play a part in the finish.
Filly by Pour Moi out of a Teofilo mare. Dam was a winner on the AW between 1m4f and 2m Sister to winners Rigoletta and Pirolo. Yard without success from 20 turf runners this season.
Filly by Camelot out of a Big Shuffle mare. Half-sister to French winners Preciously and Prestissima. Not knocked about when beaten on debut at Leopardstown earlier this month. One to watch in the market.
