Form & Verdict

Won a 1m2f maiden here earlier in the season before being campaigned mostly over middle-distances; looked suited by the drop back to 1m1f when winning the Meld Stakes here last time and the 1m should suit just as well as he travels strongly; carries a 3lb penalty but a big player.

Form & Verdict

Won a maiden over 7f here last year before winning a Listed race at Dundalk on return in March; well beaten in the 1000 Guineas but a cracking effort in a fillies' handicap next time under a big weight; needs more back from a break but Keane stays loyal.

Three-time winner in UK won the Irish Lincoln on debut for this yard before winning a Tipperary conditions race, both on easy ground; not a bad run in a Curragh Listed race last time but needs a bit more now.

Suited by ground softer than good; smart performance when third of 21 in the Irish Lincolnshire on Curragh reappearance (1m, heavy) and enough in last weekend's Newbury Spring Cup seventh to think he's still in form; respected back in slightly calmer waters.

Form & Verdict

Mare had twice been beaten in handicaps this season prior to her surprise win in a fillies' Group 3 at Fairyhouse last time; that was over 7f but she shaped like this trip will suit better; carries a 3lb penalty but has to be respected.
