Timeform on Lucky Phil

Lucky Phil - 14:35 Tramore

Lucky Phil proved better than ever and belatedly opened her account over hurdles at Gowran 12 days ago. It is a wonder it has taken her so long judged by that performance, travelling strongly before challenging two out, produced to lead at the final flight and readily quickening clear. She shaped with promise on her chase debut the time before and there should be much more to come from her in this sphere too.

Golazo - 15:10 Tramore

Golazo showed near-useful form in bumpers and shaped with promise on his hurdling debut at Cork in July. However, he has been unable to build on that in two starts since, for all he was unsuited by the drop back to two miles at Gowran last time. There is reason to think he can make his mark over fences now, particularly now having his stamina stretched, and this doesn't look the strongest race of its type.

Silk Worm - 15:45 Tramore

Silk Worm shaped with plenty of promise on debut in a bumper at Listowel last month, racing prominently in the main group until being outpaced on the home turn, but rallying well inside the final furlong to be beaten two lengths. She seems well up to winning a similar event, likely to improve for that initial experience, and makes a fair bit of appeal here.
