Chiltern Hills wasn't suited by the minimum trip when last seen at Listowel in September and did well to get as close as she did. Today's trip should suit and she looks certain to be in the firing-line. Carrigeen Lonicera landed a Fairyhouse bumper before starting favourite for a Limerick maiden where she attempted to make all at a steady pace. She couldn't quicken enough to hold off the winner and runner-up QUEEN OF THE HILL, who is taken to confirm the form and gain her first success over timber. Trendy Native wasn't far behind in fourth that day and as that was an improved performance she's likely to get involved while Casablanca Lily and Milestone Miss have both shown promise and make this a tricky maiden for punters to unravel.
