Verdict

Beyond Brilliance is a half-sister to four middle-distance winners and though showing promise in her opening campaign should do better when tackling further. BOOKER never threatened the winner on her introduction at Naas in June but caught the eye with a late run and looks just the type to win races this season, starting here. Zaindera is by Acclamation and should have plenty of pace. She'll improve this season and looks a threat while Cultured Lady led for a long way over 7f at Dundalk on her final start last season.
