In depth

Verdict

Principalship was a 33/1 chance here last month but ran quite well behind Moments Linger and looks certain to get into contention. Almost A Dream came here last week and showed good pace over 6f without threatening while there was plenty of confidence behind Windham Belle at Naas but she was in need of the experience. GLOW WORM makes a quick reappearance after a promising start in what looked a strong maiden over 6f at Naas on Monday where she led for a long way. Jack Davison's speedily-bred filly looks the one to beat with normal progress.
