Highest rated in the field and won a Listed race on quick ground at the Curragh on Derby weekend last summer; not as good after and has been gelded; Foley presumably has to ride lower-rated stablemate due to a retainer; decent record fresh.

Useful sort was second in a Group 3 earlier this season before winning a 1m Listed race at the Curragh; however, was below form the last twice in Group 3 company and needs to bring his best up in trip; by a US-based dirt horse so should be suited by this surface.

Classy filly won a Leopardstown maiden last season and was runner-up in the Group 3 Cornelscourt Stakes at Leopardstown on return, both on soft; showed she handles good ground when a fast-finishing fourth in the Irish 1000 Guineas after not getting the clearest of runs; will take beating.

Dual C&D winner has run creditably in defeat in Group 3 company, including twice this season over 7f; the return to 1m will suit and this ground-versatile sort is likely to be closely involved.

Wide-margin Navan maiden winner last year before contesting the Vertem Futurity; neck second on seasonal debut in 1m1f Listed at Leopardstown; looked a bit one-paced over 1m on his next start and found 7f inadequate in a Group 2 event at Leopardstown last week; interesting on handicap debut, but no horse of his age has won this since 2004.
