Betterbetterbetter showed plenty of inherited ability on her debut and attempts to justify her Classic entries in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden at Dundalk.
Aidan O'Brien's Galileo filly, a close relation to Group One winners Yesterday and Quarter Moon as well as Oaks placegetter All My Loving, stuck to her guns well to beat all bar a similarly smart prospect in Princess Highway at Leopardstown, and there should be much more to come.
Her stable companion Demurely boasts just as eyecatching a pedigree, but she doesn't have the racecourse experience of Betterbetterbetter.
Tannery also filled the runner-up berth at the same Leopardstown meeting and attempts to go one better in the Follow Dundalk On Facebook Handicap.
David Wachman's filly probably has most to fear from Jim Bolger's easy course scorer Miracle Cure, while China One created a decent impression here on his introduction and deserves top weight.
Wachman applies blinkers to Feathers And Bows, which could spark improvement for the Hen & Stag Packages At Dundalk Stadium Handicap, and steps Domino Queen out of maiden company for the first time in the Dundalk Stadium Handicap. The Bolger-trained Misteireach is equally unexposed.
Brog Deas and Samollie, both carrying penalties for successes last week, set the standard, though.
Wachman could get off to a flyer in the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden (5.50) as his Duntle offered glimpses of promises behind Twirl on her sole juvenile appearance and more is anticipated this year.
Opa Loca keeps hitting the crossbar and deserves a change of fortune in the Dundalk Stadium On Facebook Maiden, and her stablemate Word For Word will be on plenty of shortlists for the DKIT Student Race Night Handicap, having made the frame on his last couple of outings, most recently at this venue just a week ago.
