7.30 NAAS 6F LISTED STAKES FILLIES & MARES :
9 runners declared for decent looking fillies & mares sprint listed race .The three main contenders on offiial ratings are Tobann , Gathering Power & Minalisa
TOBANN :Progressive filly , bounced back to form at the end of June, finishing close second in decent 7 furong 25K handicap at Curragh .Followed that with career best effort winning 7 furlong G3 Brownstown stakes in good style ,beating the useful Majestic Style by 1.5 lenghs.Obvious claims here dropping down into listed company ,though has 5lb penalty and drop back in trip is not sure suit.
GATHERING POWER : Dual C&D winner at Naas ,winning two handicaps,including winning 10k handicap in April off mark 87 .However showed improved form in May ,finishing second at Haydock in 6 furlong listed race behind Joyeuse on soft ground.Bit disappointing last time only finishing 6 of eight in G3 contest at Leopardstown.
MINALISA : Consistent mare ,winning four from 14 starts .Ran some good races last season ,including finishing excellent second in this race last year ,only beaten head by Miss Lahar.Also Ran respectable 2 lengh fourth last time in 6 furlong listed race at Salisbury behind Indigant.Should go well with conditions to suit .
VERDICT :Interesting listed contest for fillies & Mares .Tobann has clearly the best form on offer here, winning decent group three contest last time,though all three of her wins have been over 7 furlongs and has never convinced over this shorter trip .Under 5lb penalty looks worth opposing.
MINALISA looks the percentage call ,having gone close in this race last year .Ran some decent races in listed company last season and looks to coming to the boil with fair fourth last time in stronger looking race .Has her optimum conditions here six furlongs on fast ground .Odds around 3-1 look very fair .
