Took a step forward when upped in trip at Leopardstown last month when allowed to dictate on quicker ground; interesting he remains in maiden company rather than take the handicap route.

Is 0-4 on the Flat, divided between turf and AW (tailed off in sole handicap over 1m4f at Dundalk); did make the frame in a maiden hurdle here in February (tailed off in latest hurdle) and all things considered he has a lot to prove; blinkers are new.

Sister to Irish Derby and St Leger winner Capri struggled from some way out on debut here on Guineas' weekend in May when soundly beaten; has had a bit of a break since and longer trip to suit but very hard to be confident in at this stage.

Kitten's Joy colt shaped with promise on both maiden outings last month, coming from well back when second at Gowran and again best work at finish when fourth in a stronger Curragh contest on softer ground; seems a bit onepaced and longer trip could suit but not bred for it; cheekpieces now tried.

Useful, consistent level of form this term, most recently at today's trip when denied by a lesser-fancied stablemate on the line at Limerick, not sure this stiffer track will suit but major chance if seeing it out.
