KILBARRY BEAUTY won a Cork bumper last April before an excellent effort behind Zuzka here the following month. She may have just needed her run at Naas last month and looks the one to be on. Nouveau Moulin has progressed nicely and could hardly have been more impressive in winning over the course and distance in January. Deise Dasher is improving gradually and belied her 33/1 starting price with a fine effort behind Daisy's Gift at Thurles. Angel Chorus was out with the washing until making strong late headway at Naas on Sunday and will have learnt enough to get competitive here.
