A very ordinary maiden in which WISHING STAR may finally get her turn, having gone close over just short of this trip at Gowran last time. Nothing else compares in terms of form although Frankincense could prove a different proposition now on better ground and with a tongue-tie fitted. [Alan Hewison]

Beaten favourite on seasonal return here in May but form since sets the standard here in an ordinary maiden, notably last month over just shy of this trip at Gowran when third in an apprentice handicap; probably won't get a better opportunity.

Solid performance on debut here over 7f in May, not as effective in similar Gowran contest a month later; tongue-tie now fitted and upped in trip but likely more one for handicaps in due course.

Winning hurdler in the French provinces was twice placed over fences last winter; very hard to know what to make of her on Irish/polytrack debut and watching brief best advised.

Brother to Battle Of Marengo, among others, certainly hasn't captured the imagination in two starts (short-priced second favourite on second occasion) on much softer ground; combination of first-time tongue-tie and better ground could bring forth improvement in a maiden which is unlikely to take much winning.
