Cinder Rua showed little early in her career but a spell of hunting has livened her up and she looks ready to win soon judging on her run behind Feenakilmeedy at Limerick. GOLD PLATINUM was disqualified after finishing runner-up at Clonmel last week as her rider missed out the second last by mistake. It was her best run to date and with conditional jockey's title-chasing Kevin Sexton in the saddle she can gain compensation. Painted Lady has to be a threat as though she's now had eight starts over timber she's rarely been beaten far against decent opposition. She also holds Vic Dancer on their run at Leopardstown in January.
