Verdict

UPPER SILESIAN progressed with each run in her first season and though beaten seven lengths by Balansiya on her final start at Leopardstown the winner is well regarded and finished runner-up in a Group 3 there last weekend. Jim Bolger's filly can get off the mark though Ebeyina is from a superb family of middle-distance winners and would be an obvious threat if fully wound up. Golden Sky out of a winning sprinter who has produced a 7f winner with her first foal so she could be useful.
