Tirghra made steady progress in her opening campaign and reappeared in a Group 3 at Leopardstown, though she finished last. Jim Bolger puts an apprentice up to lessen her load but she'll need to improve. TAHAANY has an entry in the Irish 1000 Guineas and will need to win easily here to justify it. The problem for potential supporters is that all starts to date have been on fast ground but there's no reason why she shouldn't handle these conditions. Dance With Another is more of a staying type and has entries in the Oaks at the Curragh and Epsom. She didn't appear to appreciate heavy ground at the Curragh on her reappearance and conditions won't be any easier here.
