Blue Jig Lady has done nothing wrong in her two runs on good ground and it depends how she acts in today's conditions that will determine her chance against penalised opponents. BURN AND TURN appeared suited to the decent ground she encountered when slamming 11 previous winners in a very strong bumper here in May. She looks a superb prospect and hopefully will be fit enough to see off Supreme Carolina, a comfortable winner on her debut at Listowel in heavy ground, and Missunited, who scored by no less than 13l in soft going at Listowel last month.
