Form & Verdict

Really impressive in Listed class here on return when overcoming a slow start but lost too many lengths when runner-up in a Listed race at Limerick when last seen, although only beaten 1l; leading claims on form and shapes like he will stay this longer trip but his tardy starts are a concern.

Form & Verdict

Won the Irish Leger in 2019 and 2020; she would be very hard to beat if anywhere near her peak in this contest but she was a bit below form at Longchamp when last seen 79 days ago and the yard form is a concern.

Form & Verdict

Decent handicapper who stays this trip well and she picked up some Black Type when runner-up in a six-runner Listed event at Down Royal last month; that wasn't a strong race for the grade though and would need to take her form to a new level 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

Progressed from maidens to win a handicap when stepped up in trip at Chester 100 days ago; new trip should suit and while he has a fair bit more on his plate here, he can go well for his new trainer in receipt of the 3yo allowance; engaged Leopardstown Thursday.

Hasn't looked up to this sort of level in four maidens so far; interesting that she's dropped in at the deep end and the new trip could help but she has plenty to find.

Dundalk maiden winner in January; last of nine in Listed class on only start since 112 days ago; another short break to bounce back from and it would be a surprise if he was up to this level; tongue-tie fitted.
