This has cut up badly from the original entry and affords YELLOW ROSEBUD an opportunity to add to her three victories which include two at this Group 3 level. She beat her old rival Lady Wingshot very easily on heavy ground at Tipperary on her final start last season and has won first time out in both campaigns to date. Starbright had a light first season when she ran four times on this track and gained her only success on soft ground in August. She should do well this year as should Rehn's Nest, who is still a maiden but produced her best run on very heavy ground over the track and trip. The remaining pair will need to show improvement to trouble the principals.
