Extraordinarily competitive, with all but one of the 14 having finished in the first three on the level last time, and even the outlier (Morph Speed) had won his previous race. Essentially anything could win, including MACABAN CITY.
PRINCE OF PEACE gave it a good go in a better race than this last time and mild progress can see him come home in front of Bear Story, it’s possibly between the pair, though money for Ruling would be noted.
OH SAY has found a nice opening and his chance will appear even stronger should the form of his last run get an endorsement in the previous event tonight. San Aer is noted if getting in.
Very competitive and several with strong credentials. MISS SASSYBOOTS surprised on her recent return over course and distance and the lightly raced three-year-old could still have more to offer. She gets the nod ahead of the likes of Kudbegood, Golden Days, Neyland and Irish Ambassador. Pempie is one who could go well at a price.

An open look to this nursery, but PALOISE really seemed to be getting the hang of things in the closing stages over C&D last month and gets a tentative vote here. Likely dangers include Sardonyx and Chevillon, while first reserve Catherine Chroi is feared if getting a run.
Not a strong maiden and seemingly a fine opportunity for WONDER ELZAAM (NAP), who has been racing in much better company. The selection seemed to handle this surface last winter and can hold off the likes of Anjah and Feminism, while the well-bred newcomer Kush is worth keeping an eye on in the market.
The standard bearer here is Master Matt, in terrific form of late and has every chance of confirming form with Earls from their clash here last time. However, he might have more difficulty confirming placings with third-placed ALFREDO ARCANO.
Last year’s winner came back to form when third two weeks ago and has been dropped another 1lb for that. He is now 7lbs lower than last year’s mark and if he can follow through, he should have every chance in a race where everything has come sort of chance.
Typically open looking Dundalk handicap with those at the top of the handicap, particularly Noirvento and top-weight Aloysius Lilius. But, it might be worth taking a chance here with DARK KRIS, who was far from disgraced on his stable debut over 7 furlongs here last month and might just be the sort of horse that Pat Murphy will do well with.
