Timeform on Dromana

MADRID - Thurles 15:15

MADRID has acquitted himself well in all three starts this season, including when fourth in a Leopardstown handicap at the weekend, and is taken to get off the mark in what looks a weak maiden. Country Garden and Madame Delavanti are a couple of the others to consider.

DROMANA - Thurles 16:20

DROMANA shaped with promise in each of her qualifying runs and rates a likely improver now upped in trip on handicap debut. Chaparral Dream and Path of Silver may give the selection most to think about.


LIFFEYDALE DREAMER has her first crack against her elders starting out for a new yard, and back on her last successful mark, seemingly has a lot in her favour. Power Drive is worth another crack at this sort of trip, while Lizard Point is a long-standing maiden but can pick up further place money.
