Verdict

Bye Bye Brussels made a bright start at the Curragh and can't have been right when virtually tailed off at Gowran so expect her to do much better. Beach Wedding showed promise at the Curragh before a decent effort when stepped up to this trip at Gowran but FEISTY KATERINA can get off the mark. She was a 33/1 chance on her debut over 6f at Fairyhouse but caught the eye with a late run. Himmah has been beaten by a couple of smart performers while Ball Girl was heavily supported at Gowran and was probably a bit unlucky not to catch Outside Inside so has to be a real threat in an interesting maiden.
