Career best effort on her latest start finishing second of 16 running Simply True to ½L at Gowran Park on heavy ground over 7f earlier this month. One to consider.

Five-race maiden yet to hit the frame on any of her career starts so far. Hints of improvement in a couple of starts since last month and no surprise to witness a bold bid in this company on second handicap start.

Improved on debut effort at the Curragh, not knocked about when beaten to finish a creditable 4th in a Roscommon maiden in early September before more progress at Listowel later in the month. Should be in the hunt for prize money.

Three-race maiden well held on each dismal start so far including a heavy defeat on return to action at Gowran Park earlier this month. Others logically preferred.

Not disgraced in a number of efforts since making her debut in April when in the care of trainer Gavin Cromwell. Promising in a couple of starts for current connections and is open to significant improvement.

Si-race maiden posted a career best effort on latest start in a Gowran Park tf heavy ground handicap earlier this month finishing fourth of 16 beaten 4L behind Simply True. Holds place claims if things fall his way.

Well beaten and never nearer in four career starts so far. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Seven-race maiden. Not discredited in her first couple of brushes in handicap company but possibly best watched once again unless market indicates otherwise.

Three-race maiden generally well held on each of her below-par displays so far. Steps back up to a mile here on handicap debut and hard to fancy with plenty to prove.

Half-brother Hunt is a Grade 1 winner over 1m, but this daughter of Gutaifan showed little on any of her three starts and others likely to have her measure.

Has failed to register a meaningful effort in five career maiden starts since her debut in July. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.

Four-race maiden. No impression after half-way on handicap debut in a 6f contest at this track last month on heavy ground. Worth a check in the market stepping up in trip.

Gale Force Ten colt. Sent off at big prices in four career maidens so far, running accordingly on each occasion. Form doesn't warrant support here.

Not much to shout about in five dismal career efforts so far including finishing 11th of 19 in a 19-runner handicap over 6f here last month. First time cheekpieces doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here.

Betting

Forecast

Bigz Belief (5/2), Zoom Zoom Babe (5/2), Sasta (4/1), Dragon Of Malta (7/1), Benignitas (7/1), Princess Mayson (7/1), Scholastic (10/1), Waterville Lady (10/1), Camogue Wood (16/1), Dame Rapide (20/1), Portara (20/1), Miss Adventurous (33/1), Bass Reeves (33/1), Made In Pimlico (40/1), Sea Breezer (50/1)

Verdict

ZOOM ZOOM BABE was not winning out of turn when getting off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking when landing a Leopardstown 1m contest on handicap debut on Saturday. The Footstepsinthesand filly wouldn't have to improve too much to land the spoils here under a 6lb penalty. The Jim Bolger pair, Sasta and Beningitas look improving sorts on the ground and can put up the biggest opposition to the Joseph O'Brien-trained filly. It would not be a surprise to witness improved efforts from the Jessica Harrington-trained Waterville Lady and Scholastic for Aidan O'Brien.
