Useful filly. Didn't need to improve to win 12-runner listed race at Leopardstown (10f, soft, 7/2) when last seen in October, making all. Just the type yard can get more out of in 2021.

Useful mare. 2 wins at Dundalk his year. 4¼ lengths fifth of 8 to Epona Plays in Park Express Stakes (14/1) at Naas (8f, heavy) 38 days ago, unsuited by drop in trip. Merits consideration.

Useful filly. Off 5 months, 5½ lengths seventh of 10 to Moll in listed race at Cork (12.1f, good to soft, 28/1) 32 days ago. More needed to make an impact at this level.

Sister to top-class Minding who made winning debut at Naas (1m). Well held in 1000 Guineas Trial at Leopardstown just a fortnight later but remains with tons of potential up in trip.

Winner at Galway in October. Very good 4¼ lengths second of 15 to Rocky Sky in listed race (33/1) at Navan (10f, good to soft) on return 10 days ago. Bit more needed again but it's certainly possible.

Forecasts

French Fusion (2/1), Amma Grace (9/4), Empress Josephine (3/1), Insinuendo (4/1), Tartlette (11/1), Too Soon To Panic (12/1), Lady Anner (16/1), Getawiggleon (125/1)

Verdict

EMPRESS JOSEPHINE remains with tons of potential despite quickly losing her unbeaten record at Leopardstown and she can get back on track with victory, the step up in trip sure to suit this full-sister to Minding. Amma Grace is just the type to kick on again at 4 for Dermot Weld and is feared. Tartlette is another to consider.

  1. EMPRESS JOSEPHINE (IRE)
  2. AMMA GRACE (IRE)
  3. TARTLETTE
