Demon one to note

THE improving Shes A Demon is one to note in heat four of the Mike english Photo & Video Stakes at Curraheen Park tonight.

The John Kiely trained runner posted a 29.80 effort at Youghal before finishing an unlucky second at the same venue earlier this month.

Shes A Demon has scope for further improvement and can strike again at the main expense of Calder Earl.

The latter made it two wins from three starts when carding 29.42 last time but has been done no favours by a trap five draw.

Barnagrane Brid, always in control when scoring unchallenged in 29.09 on her debut last month, can go on improving in heat two.

Greenfield Style, who came from behind to card 29.03 first time of asking recently, can also double up in heat three.

The consistent Denross Boy makes appeal from an inside slot in heat one.
