Appears to be getting better with experience, again finding just one too good upped to 24.3f here (heavy) last time. Drop back in trip shouldn't be an issue and she's a must for the shortlist.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

BURNT ASH's latest effort at Fairyhouse was rather subdued, but she shaped well prior to that when fourth in a big-field Navan maiden and may well improve now faced with a stiffer test. She gets the nod ahead of the steadily progressive Charm Offensive, who will be a big threat if coping with the forecast sound surface (only raced on heavy going to date). Miss Tara Moss also has claims.

Betting Forecast

10/3 Could Be Trouble (Ire), 11/4 Miss Tara Moss, 5/2 Charm Offensive (Fr), 22/1 Deauville Society (Ire), 300/1 Peak Of Beauty (Ire), 33/1 Highland Gold, 25/1 Maggies Mogul (Ire), 13/2 Burnt Ash (Ire), 66/1 Courting Insanity (Ire)
