Verdict

Grade 3 races for mares don't grow on trees which is why Lucy Wadham is sending Baby Shine for this. She's done well over fences, winning at Towcester and Newbury, though she's been a bit disappointing on her two recent starts. BYERLEY BABE carries a penalty for her victory at a similar level at Thurles in January where she had Caoimhe's Delight close up in third. She's since found 2m too short at Navan and can confirm the form with the latter on 5lb worse terms. Civena gained her first victory over fences on New Year's Day but finished last to Foxrock in a Grade 2 last month. Lisrose beat Caoimhe's Delight at Thurles, her best run to date over fences, and must have a chance of completing a double.
