Atyaab ran so poorly on softish ground at Naas that there must have been something amiss or she hated the going as her earlier efforts on faster ground had shown plenty of promise. Ibelieveinmiracles has gone right off the boil after her excellent mid-summer form. Mini Chou hasn't had much chance in handicaps from what looked a stiff mark and will be better off back in this maiden but this can go to FINALSTAR. Michael Grassick's filly ran her best race to date here in May and looked on the way back to form with a decent run behind Whip Mark at Fairyhouse last time.
