Form & Verdict

Well-related Churchill colt overcame inexperience to beat modest opposition on debut in a 1m4f maiden at Bellewstown; hard to assess, but this represents a huge jump in class.

Form & Verdict

Got the hang of things in the second half of last season, winning three races in five starts between August and October; decent form again this term; coped well in a Group 3 race on latest, but will need a career-best to make her presence felt here.

Successful three times at handicap level in 2021; largely consistent since, most recently 50-1 fourth in Group 3 at Leopardstown (1m6f, good); more exposed than most of these rivals, however, and seems set for another supporting role.

Progressive handicapper two seasons ago, winning three times; ran well in defeat in stakes races last season; showed the ability to stay this trip in events at Leopardstown, Down Royal and the Curragh; solid Group 3 form, linked to the likes of Earl Of Tyrone, Emily Dickinson and Raise You gives her every chance at this level; probably wants better ground.

Form & Verdict

Competed in smart company at two and again highly tried this season; creditable third in Ulster Derby at this venue before reverting to Pattern company on latest, finishing just in front of Master Of Reality in the Group 2 Curragh Cup; not certain to uphold that form with last year's winner of this race.

Form & Verdict

Bumper winner who switched to Flat last year, notching three wins and a second from four attempts; first three Flat runs were over 1m7f/2m but he showed smart form when dropped to 1m5f for a 23-runner premier handicap at Leopardstown on final outing; good chance on official figures, but lacks the advantage of race-fitness.

Form & Verdict

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.
