Dressedtothenines was well beaten on her debut and winning point-to-pointer Saddlenomore has shown nothing so far under Rules so this looks between Noras Fancy and IS HERSELF ABOUT, who met in a Listed race at Fairyhouse won by Ceol Rua last weekend. The former, a handicap winner over the C&D in October, was the better supported of the pair but had little chance after a very bad mistake at the third. She's better than that but David O'Brien's mare ran very well in that 2m2f event, looking a threat at the second last before fading, and she can confirm the form and take this.
