Verdict

A winner of a mares' maiden at Clonmel in January, MAGIC DAZE produced a career-best display when runner-up to stablemate Telmesomethinggirl in the mares' novice hurdle at Cheltenham in March, her inexperience still in evidence at times. There's more to come from Henry de Bromhead's mare and she can come out on top, possibly at the chief expense of Gauloise and Bigbadandbeautiful.
