In depth

Verdict

Fire Fly returned a losing favourite over 6f at the Curragh when back in maiden company. She’s preferred to newcomer Delphinia of the Ballydoyle trio while Kevin Manning abandons Cuileann in favour of stablemate and newcomer Operatic Export. Royal Canford finished closer at the Curragh recently without looking like winning but TOSEN SHAUNA was beaten only a neck over 7f at Gowran and she gets the vote with any further improvement likely to see her go close again. Bellakris is a €200,000 Scat Daddy filly to note and preferred to Olympic Heroine of the rest.
