The drop back to 7f last time didn't bring about much improvement from BLEU CIEL ET ROUGE but she still beat Before Long by five lengths. Dermot Weld's filly had earlier been beaten a nose over today's trip at Bellewstown and gets the nod. Along The Shore, Sinndar Sandy and Nice Vintage look likely improvers while the newcomers Tap Focus and Moving On Up are both worth a second glance in the betting.
