Ma Belle Amie had Chasing Shadows a long way behind when a close fourth on her hurdling debut at Listowel and with further progress almost guaranteed can go well with her age allowance. Winning bumper Carries Darling hasn't enjoyed the very testing conditions on her two latest starts after a good run behind Primroseandblue over 2m here and today's conditions should be more to her liking. Carrigeen Kariega, a winning point-to-pointer, made a bright start over hurdles over this C&D in March but disappointed on her final start at Cork in April. KIMS FANCY set a blistering gallop over today's trip at Fairyhouse last week but weakened before the last and was touched off for second, about 12 lengths behind the winner Seefood. Ridden with a bit more restraint on this slightly better ground she can get off the mark.
