FormscanBy John O'Riordan - Although now 9lb higher than when winning here last week, FAIRYTALE PRINCESS should be able to defy the handicapper for a second time. The Ger Lyons trained three-year-old looked to show huge improvement for the switch to the all-weather surface, so having remained in the lowest grade, she can follow up. If anything, stepping up an additional two furlongs could well see the daughter of Camelot in a better light. Numidia was only just denied in the second division of that same handicap last Friday, albeit in a slightly slower time. The Peter Lawlor trained gelding is a former course winner who is certainly worth another try at this distance. Now 3lb below her mark when winning over course and distance last November, Maura's Gift also has to enter calculations.
An extended handicap for three years old and upwards rated 47-65Penalties - (after calculation of the handicap) A winner shall carry 7lb extra for each race won.
