Talitha Kum has her sights lowered for the Summer Family Day On 14th July Rated Race at Fairyhouse.

Paul Deegan pitched his filly into the Leopardstown 1000 Guineas Trial on the back of her successful return at Naas, only for her to come up short, although she wasn't beaten that far into sixth.

Hazy Glow is the highest rated runner in the line-up but Dermot Weld fits her with blinkers after a poor display in a Naas handicap, and she has ground to make up on Yulong Baoju on that evidence.

Progressive all-weather performer In Salutem tackles turf for the first time, with the field completed by Burn The Boats and Harry Trotter, who must concede weight to the three-year-olds.

Mars's sister Wonderfully and €200,000 purchase Bluebell represent Aidan O'Brien in the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden (5.25), with Coolmore colours also carried by the David Wachman-trained newcomer Remember You, who fetched 300,000gns as a yearling.

O'Brien's Venus De Milo made a six-figure sum at the sales as well and starts her career in the Follow Us On Facebook Fillies Maiden, in which the Group One-engaged Danseur De Feu sets a decent standard on the basis of her runs at Naas and Gowran Park.

Late Rosebud made an encouraging introduction when third on the opening day of the turf season and she crosses swords with similarly promising sorts in Silver Lightening and General Brook, as well as John Oxx's debutant Waahy, in the Follow Fairyhouse On Twitter Median Auction Maiden.

Enigma Code sprung a 25-1 surprise at Down Royal and is turned out under a penalty in the Dunboyne Handicap, while Municipal will need to take a few steps forward if he is to play a significant role in the Fairyhouse Summer Series Handicap for Johnny Murtagh, who got off the mark as a trainer at the weekend.
