Amalfi Coast got no real run when a beaten favourite on debut and could well set the record straight here. Denis Hogan also has a strong hand to play with both Porsche Cavalier and Charlie De Rio.
However, in what could well be an informative affair, HARMONY ROSE is marginally preferred. Ken Condon’s charge finished powerfully when third at Tipperary and she left the impression she was a winner waiting to happen.
Aidan O’Brien’s runners are famed for progressing form their first run to their second and it will probably be no different with the now blinkered Apollo Thirteen. But, Dermot Weld’s HARANNDA is threatening to bag one of these, and she can be compensated here for her recent Curragh defeat where she was the best of the rest when leading her group home behind Abeona. Roses Blue, Shelly Banks and Wait A Little won’t be far away either.
An interesting clash here of some smart fillies. Measure Of Magic is already a Listed winner this season and her race fitness will stand her in good stead. But, TERESA MENDOZA looked an exciting sort as a two-year-old before failing at the top level on her final start as a two-year-old, and can go a long way to rebuilding her reputation here. Loch Lein and Camdeboo won’t be far away either.
This is wide-open, but REAL APPEAL had several of these in behind at Leopardstown last time out when making his seasonal debut and with plenty of Jessica Harrington’s runners improving from their reappearances, he might be capable of confirming the form.
Hightimeyouwon goes well here and posted a creditable effort over course and distance last time out, while stablemate Zig Zag Zyggy could be an improver with headgear now tried. Gena is an intriguing runner having run some eye-catching races in France when last seen.
Tipperary Moon is likely to be popular in his hat-trick bid, but he only narrowly denied JM BARRIE who didn’t get a clear run, and the latter has looked at least as effective on turf in the past. It’s worth noting what the market makes of Lady Savanah and Macocha, who make their seasonal reappearances having both posted career best efforts when last seen.
This looks competitive, but the unexposed types might be the runners to focus on. LARADO (NAP) seems to have been let off lightly with just a 2lbs rise for his recent win at Leopardstown and there’s every chance of him improving for this step up in trip. Hale Bopp is another who should improve for further and Kosman can’t be discounted after his narrow defeat last time out.
HMS Seahorse ticks pretty much of all the required boxes here. He is rated 86, he is race-fit and represents Aidan O’Brien. But, on the downside, he has become a little expensive to follow and despite all his obvious credentials, he remains vulnerable.
On that note, a chance is taken on MCPHERSON. Jessica Harrington’s charge showed plenty in both starts as a two-year-old and this dual Derby-entered colt, could well improve significantly on this better ground. Rekero is another one to note.
