Ground-versatile, winning on good and AW before signing off last season by landing a 1m4f Listed race on soft; had previously shown a good standard of form on soft ground in two French raids, second at Clairefontaine in July, fourth at Saint-Cloud last month; Group 3-placed at Cork in between on soft-to-heavy; tongue-tie on now.

Form & Verdict

Hasn't won since his 2yo days but has consistently run well in quality races up to 2m in varying ground conditions; should give it another solid shot but may find a few too good again.

Form & Verdict

Gowran maiden winner last year over just short of 1m2f ran well in defeat in stronger company afterwards including when 3l behind Dancing Tango in a Listed race at Naas over 1m4f; lost a shoe when poor on return; probably better on softer.

Perfect Portrait

9st 2lb

J: Mikey Sheehy

T: Joseph Patrick O’Brien

Fourth in a 1m Group 3 at two, course winner of a maiden over just short of 1m2f this time last year; next two runs implied that progress had stalled but she ran a big race at 40-1 when fourth in a 1m4f Listed event at Galway (Enfranchise second at 50-1) and backed that up with a solid Naas third behind stablemate Dancing Tango.

3 yo Colt

OR: 102

Form & Verdict

Got off the mark in a Dundalk maiden over 1m2f and improved to win a York handicap over 1m4f since; mark has risen to 102 and likely has more to give, so has to be respected from this source.

J: Gary Carroll

T: R Donohoe

Dual-purpose performer improved considerably on Flat last year, culminating in a Listed win over 1m4f at the Curragh in heavy ground; has failed to win in ten starts on AW so last month's disappointing run at Dundalk should not be held against her

Form & Verdict

Ended a losing run that went back to his 2yo days when winning a Naas Listed over 1m2f in testing ground on seasonal debut; was below that form in a Leopardstown Listed since; seems better with more ease in the ground.
