Princess Sinead has been unfortunate to come up against two very useful juveniles in Maybe and Teolane and will be a warm order to go one better but she may again have to play the bridesmaid as RIGOLETTA made a very promising debut in what looked a hot Leopardstown maiden won by Yellow Rosebud. Jim Bolger's filly can go one better though there are numerous dangers including the Ballydoyle pair Chieftess, though she was well behind the selection at Leopardstown, and the newcomer Soon, who is related to some useful performers including Walk In The Park. Jemima's Pearl should be picking up a maiden before long judged on her fine start behind Vault here earlier this month.
