SHESAFOXYLADY started favourite on her debut at the Festival here but found the heavy ground against her and took an age to warm up. With that under her belt and much faster conditions she can gain her first success. She's A Leader reappeared with a fine effort behind Bluemountainbeach at Tramore and, with more progress likely, she has to be on the short-list. Little Mitch was totally unfancied for her racecourse debut at Sligo a month ago but made a very encouraging start behind Royal Moll and looks certain to get involved if in that kind of form. Fourni looked in need of a longer trip at Cork and Shes Tensixtysix has spurned easier opportunities.
