4/1

Promising fourth in a 6f maiden at Naas on debut, and improved on that when 1½L second of 11 to Silence Please in a 7f maiden at Gowran last time. Drop in trip a slight concern, but she she comes strongly into the reckoning on form to date.

1/1

Built on earlier efforts when ½L second of 13 to Brunelle in a 6f maiden at Leopardstown last time, when collared only late. Sets the standard on that, and looks sure to go well once more.

16/1

War Command half-sister to 1m1f winner Muntahez. Yard appears to have a better chance with For The Trees, but certainly worth a market check given her pedigree and connections.

33/1

Bred to be speedy (from family of G2 Prix Robert Papin winner Irish Field), but badly in need of the experience on debut at Gowran. Will progress, perhaps markedly, and not a forlorn hope by any means.

66/1

By Camacho out of a 1m1f winner in France. A very cheap purchase on two occasions, however, and that doesn't augur well for her chances here.

100/1

Showed ability despite greenness on debut, but she has failed to improve in two subsequent starts. Now hooded, and while it's too early to write her off, others make much more appeal at this level.

16/1

Fast Company half-sister to a modest winner, and cost €2,500 as a yearling. Yard not associated with juvenile winners, and easy enough to cast her aside.

33/1

Full-sister to 2-y-o 5f winner Haadhir and half-sister to 1m to 1¼m winner Couldn't Could She. Cost €6.500 as a foal, and trainer doesn't rush his debutants, so only of interest if attracting support.

10/3

Runner-up on her last four stats in maiden company, showing similar form. More exposed than her rivals here, but no reason why she won't give her running, and should be in the frame once more.

25/1

Half-sister to multiple winner Surrey Blaze. Took a keen grip when seventh of 11 to Silence Please in a maiden at Gowran last month, and likely to progress, especially if she settles better.

Age: 2|  Weight: 8-6  |  J: A C Persse |  T: P McCreery
100/1

Half-sister to several winners, but bought for just €1,000, and offered little at big odds on her racecourse bow at Naas last month.

20/1

Requinto half-sister to 4f-5f winner Snoozy Sioux and 1¼m-1½m winner Affluence. Featched a modest €7,500 as a yearling, and the fitting of a hood for debut sounds alarm bells.

Forecast

For The Trees (1/1), Glow Worm (10/3), Believe In Beauty (4/1), Elite Legion (16/1), Cara's Company (16/1), Requinto's Rose (20/1), One Cool Choice (25/1), Be Like The Bird (33/1), Eglish (33/1), Miss Adventurous (33/1), Camisra (66/1), Portara (100/1), Capelli Rossi (100/1)

Verdict
FOR THE TREES sets the standard on her second to Brunelle at Leopardstown, and the slightly shorter trip is a positive, so she should be hard to beat. Believe In Beauty is not so certain to benefit from this shorter trip after a good second over 7f at Roscommon, but she should still have a role to play, as should the consistent Glow Worm, who has yet to finish out of the money in five starts.
