Verdict

Kilruane Shea made a very encouraging debut over this course and distance in May and has been given a break since a moderate effort at Navan a week later. Ealain Aibrean started odds-on for that May run on this track but finished last after missing the break. She still hasn't got her head in front though her latest run behind Candy Apples at Bellewstown is probably her best. AMYGDALA showed promise on her debut and confirmed that opinion with a fine effort behind Hurryupharriet at Tipperary. She can go one better as Jim Bolger has had a quiet time with his two-year-olds and, though it's about time he burst into life, Teoleena's pedigree suggests she'll need further.
