Arges has been showing good speed over longer trips, including when narrowly beaten over 7f at Limerick last weekend. CALETA SUNRISE didn't show much in her first two starts but it was a different matter over the track and trip last time where she could be rated an unlucky loser having been badly impeded. Dream Oasis, who finished just in front of her, had every chance though still looked in need of experience. Cherry Bloom shaped as though she needed another furlong when fifth at Cork where she had Speedacus behind.
