Form & Verdict

Group 3 winner at Leopardstown last season (1m4f, good); ran okay on reappearance when beaten just over 7l by Kyprios but failed to back that up over 1m4f last time; return to 1m6f should suit and may not be far away if back to his best.

Form & Verdict

Group 1 winning juvenile over 1m2f in France; started life well in Ireland and got off the mark in Gowran conditions event last time; is likely to make the pace but unsure whether he will stay 1m6f or not; chance if coping with new trip.

Form & Verdict

Was in cracking form last summer, including third in Irish Derby; his close fourth behind Princess Zoe in the Sagaro Stakes confirmed his staying credentials although 2m5f Queen Alexandra trip may have been a step too far; will be more at home now back at 1m6f and should be right there if able to overcome the quick turnaround.

Stays 2m but below-form seventh in the 2m5f Queen Alexandra in 2022; well treated today on best of his Group-race form for Aidan O'Brien and, switched to hurdling this year, he breezed home in front in a Bangor maiden (soft) for new yard ten days ago; case can be made.

Form & Verdict

Only the two wins in recent times, both at Down Royal, but he always gives a good account of himself in staying Group races, including when second in this two years ago; wasn't disgraced on seasonal reappearance and should be all the better now with a run under his belt; big player.

J: Declan McDonogh

T: Joseph Patrick O’Brien

Only the two wins in recent seasons, both at this venue, including this race last year, justifying favouritism; this looks a stronger edition, but he should be fully primed for a repeat bid with two runs under his belt; his liking for the track suggests he may reverse last month's Curragh form with Manu Et Corde; not much between them then.

Form & Verdict

Only the one win on the board but has held his form well; ran into Kyprios twice before a disappointing run at Limerick last time; tongue-tie tried today and return to 1m6f should suit but will need to be at his very best.
