Timeform on Elizabethan

ELIZABETHAN - 15:15 Naas

As you would expect from a horse hailing from this yard, ELIZABETHAN is immaculately bred, a War Front filly whose dam was herself an Irish 1000 Guineas winner, and she duly showed ability amidst greenness on her debut at the Curragh in July, finishing seventh. She then left that form well behind when finishing fourth at Limerick last time, holding every chance a furlong out but just finding no extra late on, ultimately going down by less than a length. She should progress further and looks to have leading claims.

FLIGHT ZONE - 15:45 Naas

FLIGHT ZONE has progressed with each of his three runs so far, including when third at Gowran last time, making the running but headed over a furlong out and ultimately beaten by two with potentially a bit more class. A reproduction of that effort should see him difficult to beat, and with Ger Lyons's stable in good nick at present, he looks the one to side with.

SOUTHERN LIGHTS - 17:45 Naas

A half-brother to juvenile winner W G Grace, from the family of Derby and dual Breeders' Cup Turf winner High Chapparal, it is no surprise that SOUTHERN LIGHTS fetched €550,000. The Sea The Stars colt won a nine-runner barrier trial at Dundalk in September, and there is a lot to like about his profile, so he is taken to make a successful start in this maiden.
