What they say Joe Murphy, trainer of Gatamalata "She's found one too good for her on each of her three starts, but the form of her last run was boosted when the winner won again on Friday. We're happy with her and we'll be thrilled if she can pick up some black type."

, Inca Princess, Misty For Me and Together "Together has come forward with every run and she's in good form for what is another step up the ladder. The other three are all nice fillies who have won maidens.

They are in good form and we're hoping they run well and that some of them earn some black type."

Jessica Harrington, trainer of Laughing Lashes "She is a smart maiden who ran Together to a length in a Group 3 at Leopardstown last month. She's very well and we decided to let her take her chance rather than going for a maiden. She hasn't run on easy ground before but I don't expect it will be a problem for her."

Since 1987 he has been based at Whatcombe Estate in Oxfordshire, the former stables of Dick Dawson and Arthur Budgett. , trainer of Lily Again "She's in tip-top form and she showed when winning at Sandown last time that seven furlongs suits her well. She was still a bit green there, but her work at home suggests she has come on again and we are very hopeful. We know she's pretty good, but then so are the others, so it's going to be an interesting race. If she does win, we will probably give her one more run this season."

Kevin Prendergast, trainer of Seeharn "She's in great shape. She's done everything right so far and we're looking forward to a big run from her."
