Bluegrass Princess won a Ballinrobe maiden in August and was running against much better opposition when a decent third back there on Tuesday. DOLLY DANCER made most over slightly further at Tipperary and, as that was just her second start over hurdles, further progress looks guaranteed and she can complete a double. Gotthenod also made all for a comfortable victory over Cats For Cash over the track and a big run from the runner-up in the opener will boost her chances. Beat Of The Sea was well beaten in a Downpatrick handicap last time but that didn't look her form as she'd previously run well in maidens. Sassy Yet Classy landed a maiden over this trip at Cork before finding an extended 2m too short at Clonmel while Cork maiden winner Just Klass ran very well in a Ballinrobe handicap on Monday and isn't out of this.
