Verdict

Abby Cadabby has improved out of all recognition since been given a test of stamina, though an 11lb rise for her Roscommon victory may see her run come to an end. PRINCESS PEARLITA showed promise throughout her first campaign before scoring at Dundalk and a mark of 80 may be underestimating her so she's handed the vote to continue her progress. Dalkova has generally raced in better company though may be a few pounds high but Dragon Fei should be losing her maiden tag soon judged on her short-head defeat at Fairyhouse. Just Gorgeous appeared to need every yard of the 1m4f at Cork and only just got up so this could prove on the short side but the former Godolphin filly Willowing ran very well for new connections over this trip at Navan. Diamond Daze was engaged at Limerick last night where she entered the fray on a losing run of 31.
