Jazz Girl's victory over Abu Nayef at Fairyhouse was boosted by the runner-ups subsequent success and she didn't run at all badly behind Majestic Jasmine back there on Sunday. Lady Bennett has been struggling at the weights since her victory at Naas a year ago but Khothry looked a progressive filly when landing her maiden at Limerick though the assessor hasn't done her any favours. Lady Imola may need a bit further so this looks another opportunity for NEOPHILIA despite a massive rise in the ratings. She looked to have a ton in hand when completing a double at Leopardstown and can land the hat-trick.
