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.
