Verdict

Emily Jane didn't take to hurdling on her debut at Clonmel but her earlier second to Sean Og Coulston at Fairyhouse puts her right in the frame for this. SENSATIONAL DAY had a couple of runs in Dubai for Doug Watson in January without showing anything but it was a completely different story when she made her debut for David Marnane over this C&D a month ago. Attempting to make all, she almost succeeded but was caught close home by stablemate Move. She will surely improve for that and should go one better though Little Luxury, a good fourth behind Whip Mark at Fairyhouse, and Jim Bolger's newcomer Sunset Beauty, are others to consider.
