Timeform on Harvest Bow

MOTHER VINCENT - 14:35 Gowran Park

MOTHER VINCENT showed improved form when third at the Curragh on her handicap debut, doing well to finish so close given she looked uncomfortable early on in a race run at a strong gallop. She chased home a couple of unexposed three-year-olds, who were also making their handicap debuts, and pulled well clear of the fourth, so it is form to be positive about. She has more to give and can build on that promising effort.

PROXY - 16:45 Gowran Park

PROXY showed improved form on her third start, despite still looking inexperienced, and it is likely she remains capable of even better, keeping in mind her excellent pedigree (by Frankel and out of a mare who was placed in the Irish 1,000 Guineas). This is an open maiden, in which Pienta and Yenillik are among the obvious dangers, but Proxy's appealing profile and clear scope for improvement sway things in her favour.

HARVEST BOW - 17:20 Gowran Park

HARVEST BOW was only narrowly denied at Thurles last week (she hit 1.01 in running) and the front two pulled 14 lengths clear of the third, so she holds obvious claims off the same mark. That fine effort on the Flat came as no surprise as she had been running well over jumps and is clearly in excellent heart at present.
