5/2

Was travelling well when unable to get on terms on her latest racecourse appearance at Galway. Had been showing signs of improvement and would not need to progress too much to land this contest.

66/1

Daughter of Fame And Glory out of a Fourstars Allstar mare. Closely related to bumper/hurdle winner between 2m½f and 2m4f Jackson Cage. No impression and well beaten on debut at Wexford in July. Should improve but an unlikely winner.

20/1

Little in the way of point-to-point form but ran above expectation on bumper debut at Wexford in July finishing 4/14. Can improve and one to consider.

66/1

Not disgraced on her only racecourse appearance which surprised many considering her woeful point-to.point form. Entitled to improve but does not seem a likely winner.

From family of smart staying jumpers Southern Vic and Pleasure Shared. Well held in all her three bumper starts to date.

8/11

Looks the form pick based on her two racecourse appearances including finishing a good second at Wexford last time out keeping on well in the closing stages. Likely to improve and may prove hard to beat.

7
Age: 4|  Weight: 11-4  |  J: Mr J J Codd |  T: Michael G Kennedy
9/2

Has improved with every run since making her debut at Cork in May. Looks a little one paced but plugs on well and entitled to some place prize money at the very least.

Betting

Forecast

Zola (8/11), Bonarc (5/2), Conquering Tara (9/2), It Takes Time (20/1), Mustmeetkate (33/1), Lady Maureen (66/1), Euro Dot Com (66/1)

Verdict

ZOLA appears to have the best racecourse form and there seems little reason why she is not entitled to finally get off the mark after some good efforts at Ballinrobe and Wexford. Conquering Tara is slowly improving and receiving some weight from the likely favourite the filly might be able to give the likely favourite most to do. Bonarc is another who is improving slowly and is expected to put in another solid performance without possibly being good enough to win.
  1. Zola
  2. Bonarc
  3. Conquering Tara
