Verdict

Princess Aloof didn't make her debut until June and scored twice in the summer though looked too high in the weights on her final start. ELEGANT PEACE will be difficult to beat as she produced a battling performance in soft ground at Leopardstown in November and will have conditions in her favour. Ruler Of France went up 5lb for landing a Gowran nursery and couldn't quite cope in a tougher event at Listowel and Focussed ended the campaign with a moderate effort, though won twice on soft ground in August. Fight U For It has been going well on Polytrack while Lady Clitico showed good speed for a long way on her reappearance at the Curragh.
