Smart Stat: 2 - Lucinda Russell's number of winners in past 8 runnings
Inis Oirr has some solid form in the book and deservedly opened his account at Musselburgh last month, pulling well clear of the remainder with another useful sort who won next time out. He was backed at long odds upped in grade and out of novice company in the Rendlesham at Haydock last time, though he wasn't up to the task and didn't endure a hard race. This is much more suitable and he remains with potential, especially from this sort of mark.

Mashaan hasn't been with this yard long and he was gambled on when returning from a short break at Chelmsford last month, though he shaped as though he'd come on for the run. He again attracted support over this course and distance last time, producing a better display but unable to match Inaam in the closing stages. Mashaan has a 4 lb pull at the weights now and may be up to reversing the form. He is 5 lb below his last winning mark and shouldn't be long in resuming winning ways.

So Chic remains a maiden but she has run two cracking races on her last two tries over this course and distance and she seems sure to launch another bold bid. She was unlucky to bump into a well-backed improver who was having her first start for a new yard last time, but So Chic once again was doing all of her best work at the finish and she is well up to winning a race of this nature from the same mark.
