Verdict

Fastnet Mist was beaten just over three lengths by Carla Bianca in a Naas Listed event last month, form that would normally be good enough for a maiden such as this. The winner is trained by Dermot Weld, whose STARLET produced an excellent performance on her debut to finish runner-up to her at Navan earlier. Though beaten five lengths she finished so strongly that the gap was closing quickly and this should prove well within her capabilities before heading to Galway. Mozetta found 1m1f much too short at Gowran after an encouraging debut over two furlongs further at Dundalk but winning bumper Silverpockets probably needs further.
