Dense Star, a close fourth behind Miss Amulet in a Naas Listed contest, started odds-on at Dundalk next time but couldn't get close enough to mount a challenge though was beaten less than a length. Takeko finished last in a 7f Group 3 at Leopardstown but a close third at the Curragh earlier would put her in the frame for this. Lightning Boltz looked a likely future winner when runner-up at Tipperary but then ran poorly in a similar race to this at Naas where Wood Ranger led for a long way before fading close home. WATERCOLORMEMORIES makes a quick reappearance after finishing a close second in what looked a strong race here on Saturday where she couldn't quite peg back the winner, who was receiving 9lb. Ger Lyons' filly has the best of the weights and can go one better. Fine Distraction and Going In Style were engaged at Cork yesterday.
