Form & Verdict

Comes here in excellent form, winning a 1m2f handicap at Cork in April and handled the step up to Listed class with aplomb when landing the 1m4f Orby Stakes here last month; stays 1m4f well so the drop back in trip against this calibre of horse could be a negative; still respected though.

Form & Verdict

Leading juvenile last season, culminating with his victory in the Group 1 National Stakes here in September; belated start to his season having missed the Irish 2,000 Guineas, and interesting to see him start off over this trip; the one to beat.

Most impressive on debut at Leopardstown 13 months ago; not seen since a disappointing favourite in the Chesham a year ago; intriguing runner here.

Form & Verdict

Has won at up to Group 2 level; unable to make the step up to Group 1 this season but appreciated the drop in class to readily land a 1m4f Listed event at Limerick last week; this is a decent Group 3 and likely to come up just short but sure to run his race.

Form & Verdict

Below her best on both starts this season in the spring; all of her best form is with an ease in the ground although did run well on better ground at Listowel last year; best of her form though leaves her with a little bit to find here.

Big improver last year including winning this race and back to that level of form when landing Group 3 Meld Stakes here over 1m1f in July on soft; following a break was well below best in recent Cork Listed when keen enough; bit to prove now.
