Verdict

Amma Grace started favourite for her debut at Cork and though unable to peg back the front pair stayed on and the ground won't be a concern. Epona Plays stayed on nicely on soft ground at Gowran while Holy Roman Empress found 7f too short at the Curragh. The latter's yard also run Salsa, who disappointed when odds-on at Cork, and the newcomer Moonwalk, a daughter of Mastercraftsman, who is also the sire of SINDHIA. Michael Halford's filly was well supported for her debut at Naas but didn't get the run of the race and with that experience under her belt she can gain compensation. Jessica Harrington has three entries with Katie Bo Kat possibly the best of them after a promising debut over 6f at Fairyhouse.
