Invisible Flash had shown plenty of promise before making her nursery debut at Tipperary where she was staying on over the minimum trip. Peony Fairy has been well supported on both starts but hasn't quite been able to cope against some decent opposition and drops down in trip. PRINCIPESSA AVA was totally unfancied on her debut but ran much better than expected then produced another good run in a strong maiden won by Chroussa at Listowel, form that can see her home here. Dimity has had enough chances and has done better on soft ground.
