Timeform on Coolavanny Ilia
VALIANT STRIKER's (Trap 1, 16.08) slow trapping has often proved his achilles' heel, yet his finishing effort is an impressive one. Boasting a 25% record in A4 Company, his claims are undoubtedly enhanced when escaping early crowding, when his true ability can shine through. A clear run on the rails can see the son of Kinloch Brae come out on top this afternoon.
STEPASIDE CURIE (Trap 4, 17.38) has never been one to do a lot when hitting the front, but she's more than capable when tackling the grade of D3 (successful on each of her last 2 starts in this company). Jamie Smith's charge had nothing go right on her most recent outing but has obvious claims on expected final time, and a fast break can see her home in front.
One hound who brings solid recent form to the table is COOLAVANNY ILIA (Trap 5, 17.56) and he looks sure to make a bold bid granted another fast break. Norman Melbourne's charge has largely performed in stronger events than this of late and he may well skip the field early and have enough in reserve to hold the late challengers on his inside.
