Jim Bolger’s SHE’S TROUBLE is a hopeful choice to emulate her brother Smash Williams by winning first time out. Last month’s breeze-up purchase Reigning Profit could go close, and Geodesic can be expected to show improvement from his Curragh debut.
Despite the size of the field this looks an excellent opportunity for NOTORIOUSLY RISKY (NAP) to open her account. She is officially rated 1lb inferior to Zara Mac, but that rival has so far failed to build on the promise of her three undeniably promising juvenile runs. The four-year-old Shikoko makes more appeal than all bar a couple of her younger rivals.
It looked as if the fitting of cheekpieces inspired SHABAABY to a revival in form at Naas, and this one-time 105-rated gelding may confirm the form of that race with Sounds Of Spring. Dundalk form gives Mrs Bouquet a leading chance, and Roxette is respected on her recent Curragh third. Last year’s Rockingham winner Strong Johnson has joined a stable which has suffered a prolonged drought.
A stumble out of the stalls did not help CELTIC MANOR at Naas last Saturday and he did well to take third place in the circumstances. Ben Coen’s mount may now reverse previous Curragh form with Majeski Man and Dee Sprinter. Other possibilities include Misterio, Adams Barbour and She’s In The Game.
This looks like a strong renewal with Sir Lucan setting the standard on the best of his two-year-old form. However, it’s been an encouraging start to WORDSWORTH‘s career so far and this brother to Kew Gardens ought to relish this greater stamina test. Party House defied inexperience to win well on debut 19 days ago and she also looks like an exciting prospect stepping up in trip.
Stellify has been in the form of her life since returning and one of these should fall her way before too long. However, EASTERN TORNADO seemed an unlucky loser when meeting trouble on multiple occasions at Sligo last time and he’s an unexposed sort who could be very leniently treated at present.
Dual course winner Trump Card ought to go well after his return to form last time out, but the widest draw is a concern. Conversely, Believe Jack is ideally drawn if he tries to repeat his front-running tactics from last time. However, a chance is taken on SWELLTIME, who has been running okay over hurdles of late and returns to this sphere on a workable mark.
This is a wide-open finale and plenty have chances, but SAFARI QUEST might be the one to side with. The son of Australia may have finished closer without a wide trip at Leopardstown last month and there’s a good chance he’ll take a step forward from that effort.
The Aidan O’Brien pair Modus Operandi and National Ballet both warrant respect and Mcpherson is another to consider with some notable form to his name.
