Moonmeister and Victory Rich have finished last on both starts to date. PEARL EARING was narrowly beaten by Bluebell on soft ground on her debut at Limerick before finding Group 3 level beyond her at the Curragh. She should find this more to her liking and gets the vote though Hannah's Magic showed massive improvement from her opening effort when runner-up over this track and trip two weeks ago. Hilltown Gal landed a 5f maiden at Down Royal and has gone very well in nurseries subsequently so she looks the main threat.
