Queens Boulevard looked a very smart recruit when scoring at Sligo and Listowel and started joint-favourite with stable companion YUKON LIL in a Gowran Listed contest last month. Unfortunately for her supporters, she broke down and the latter was able to take advantage. The Mullins' mare is a year younger and probably has more scope so gets the vote to confirm the places and take this. Barrington Court came up against some smart performers last season and, though returning after a break, has her allowance to aid her cause while the likes of Ballydunblaze, an easy debut winner here, Caravation, who made all at Naas, and Emily Moon, impressive at Cork, are once-raced winners with futures.
