Form & Verdict

Runner-up in a Tipperary maiden last year and at least matched that when a staying-on third in a 1m maiden at Leopardstown in May; made all for a 7f maiden win at the same venue last month; runner-up landed the odds readily on her next start; looks capable of making her presence felt.

Form & Verdict

Placed twice over 1m2f (at Navan and Cork) before front-running 1m maiden win at Gowran in May; creditable third over 1m1f at the Curragh in his first handicap when possibly in front too soon; has an edge over Mr Lincoln on that form and is well suited by the race conditions in an overall context.

Placed twice over this trip (at Navan and Cork) before front-running 1m maiden win at Cork, beating Cuban Dawn who ran respectably off 91 in the Golden Gates Handicap at Royal Ascot; makes handicap debut off 90 here and sets a good standard.

9st 8lb

J: Chris Hayes

T: D K Weld

Two good runs this season both over 1m2f; strong chance if equally effective at this trip; slight concern that his second on heavy ground at Navan was better than his third on good-to-yielding at Cork, though he was beaten under 2l; a stable outsider was too good for Cuban Dawn last week.

Form & Verdict

In rear at Cork on only start at two; caused an upset when landing a maiden at the same venue on reappearance; Group 3 attempt in the Derby Trial at Leopardstown was ambitious; finished behind Nation's Call at the Curragh on handicap debut; meets that rival on less favourable terms

Form & Verdict

Got off the mark on fourth juvenile start when taking a 1m Curragh maiden on yielding-to-soft; ran well in a Group 3 afterwards; does not seem to have trained on well as might have been hoped judged on runs at Cork and this venue; cheekpieces tried now.

Stepped up from winning a middle-distance Sligo handicap to landing a Listed race at Longchamp in August; way below her best in a Fairyhouse Group 3 in September; ignored in the market as a stable outsider at Cork and finished last of 12, with four of these rivals in front of her.
