With the form of her comfortable Leopardstown maiden win having been franked so strongly since, OODNADATTA looks the one to side with in a decent-looking contest.
The trip is sure to suit her also. No Stopping Her can give her a race, while the regally-bred Sir Lucan has to be respected, especially if money comes for him.
A competitive handicap but MADAKET MYSTERY is worth chancing at what could be a decent price. She is very consistent and bumped into a well-handicapped Star Of Cashel last time, whom she meets on much better terms today.
Love Bracelet, Early Bright, Zoom Zoom Babe and Amelia Jane are others to consider.
Roca Roma must be highly-regarded given she tackled Magical last time, but the two who jump out as potential improvers are Sunday Sweet and KASSABA.
The Dermot Weld-trained filly did not win her maiden by far at Naas, but she was in front for long enough and looks the type of filly who can continue on an upward curve. Celestial Object was second in a Group 3 last time so is sure to be popular in the market too.
This is a strong-looking fillies’ maiden, with several having shown enough ability to win a maiden, most notably Toora Loora, Thunder Kiss and GIN BLOSSOM. Meanwhile, there are a few with the potential to improve like She Loves A Night, Pyrrhic Victory and Illusory.
However, the selection has shown marginally the strongest form and will really appreciate today’s trip so gets the nod.
This looks like it will develop into a match between LONGCLAW and Pugin. One piece of form stands out like a sore thumb and that is the Gordon Elliott-trained colt finishing third behind Alpine Star and Santiago in a Galway maiden last August.
If he can return to anything close to that level it should be good enough to open his account. The newcomer, Watchmen, is of interest too.
Wilderness is a tough cookie who is hard to pass when he gets to the front, but MIGHTY BLUE might have his measure this time. The fact Joseph O’Brien pitched her into a Listed race on her first start for him suggests she had been showing him plenty at home.
She has had her sights lowered here and could outclass her rivals. Hayyel has a chance too, as does Aunt Bee.
Hard to get excited about any of these, but at least AUNTY AUDREY arrives here on the back of a solid showing. She seemed to relish this new trip when second to an in-form rival at Bellewstown and could defy a 2lb rise in what looks a much weaker race.
Yug could go well too, and even top-weight The Abbey has some sort of chance despite being out of sorts of late.
The one with most scope for improvement is surely DAWN OVER OWNING (NAP). He has only had five starts and his second to a rapidly-improving sort, now rated 19lb higher than he was at the time, at Leopardstown is the best piece of recent form on offer.
This longer trip should be right up his street and his 10lb claimer knows him well, so there are plenty of positives in a weak race. Sligo winner Little Brother looks the danger.
