Verdict

Susiescot had some decent form last season and was made favourite on her reappearance at Dundalk in January but was slightly disappointing. Colla Pier finished behind her at Leopardstown in November and needs to have improved over the winter to turn the tables, but Misteireach is the type to do better and will have come on for a recent run at Dundalk. Dermot Weld won this in 2010 with subsequent Irish 1000 Guineas winner Bethrah and his Oasis Dream filly RANSOMED ROSE carries an entry in the Irish Oaks. She'll definitely stay further than this in time but may be good enough to make a winning start as fellow newcomer Shebella looks more likely to make a middle-distance performer.
