FormscanBy Tom Weekes - BLAMETHECHAMPAGNE is badly drawn but ran well on her most recent start at Group 3 level. She finished ahead of today's rival Mary The Priest on their respective April debuts and showed a liking for good ground when a staying-on fifth in a smart race at Naas recently. She competed on level terms then and now receives weight from some rivals. Mary The Priest has a kinder draw and having shown progression on her second run at the Curragh, looks likely to win a maiden although runs on fast ground for the first time. Elliptical ran well enough at Roscommon but has plenty weight while Bruce Lightening ran well on debut under a light weight but needs to improve to win. Parish Record is a Bolger-bred first foal from an unplaced dam who is related to winners while Harry The Rogue, already gelded, is out of an unraced half-sister to a Canadian Grade 1 winner.
For two years old only, maidens at starting that are EBF eligible and whose sire established one or more yearling sales in the relevant year with a median price of not more than #30,000Weights - 9st 8lbs Fillies allowed 5lbs
