Verdict

Proper Madam scored over this trip from tonight's rival Lara Larisa at Bellewstown in August but has raced over 7f and a mile on her two subsequent starts. She should confirm the form and do much better here and rates a threat while Translator showed much improved form on her handicap debut at Dundalk and would be a danger to all if transferring that run to turf. Extra Steps didn't last out 7f at Dundalk last time but appears better over 6f so this can go to YOUCANNEVERLEAVE. Willie McCreery's filly hasn't had much experience but her close third to Ballybracka Lady at Dundalk in September is the outstanding form on view in light of the winner's subsequent exploits and with Johnny Murtagh booked and blinkers on for the first time she looks ready to gain her first success.
