Verdict

Hazledoc earned her rating with a hard-fought victory over a mile at Dundalk in December and hasn't seen a racecourse since. AN FEAR CIUIN hadn't shown much before stepping up to this trip at Killarney where she came from a long way back to snatch third. She's only 1lb higher and further progress should see her gain her first success. Hatch Hall finished just behind in fourth and looks held while Hallo Rosie was further behind after attempting to make the running.
