A race for newcomers with HARVARD the percentage call over the likes of Privilege, Alqabeela and Federal.
An interesting rematch between Atlas and REVERBERATION, first and second here earlier in the month over 7 furlongs, the former having since gone very close at Galway on Monday and due for a 5lb rise in future.
However, of the pair the latter looks better suited by this trip and Gavin Ryan gets on well with the five-year-old who needs producing late.
Imposing Supreme has to be respected given his recent promising Killarney effort, while Abeona is a potential improver but has a wide draw to overcome.
There was plenty to like about FEDERICA SOPHIA (NAP)’s debut at Cork when runner-up to a rival with plenty of experience, and both her pedigree and the way she shaped that day suggest she’s going to relish this longer trip.
Tashi is the main threat to the selection having split a couple of nice prospects at Naas last time.
Joseph O’Brien could hold the key to this race with his two runners. Galileo Chrome overcame some trouble in running when winning a nice maiden at the Curragh last time, but preference is for stablemate CHOICE OF MINE.
He wasn’t beaten far in a Group 3 at Dundalk 19 days ago and while he may have disappointed on his only previous turf start, his pedigree suggests he should be at least as equally effective on this surface.
Interesting if this week’s dual Galway winner Flying Scotsman turns up for a hat-trick bid but he had a tough enough race on Tuesday and preference is for another hat-trick seeker HISNAMEIS MRDEVITT, who has surprised all by his progress of late and could be up to defying the handicapper now upped in trip.
Sideshift is another on the improve with likely more to offer at this trip, while Bella Brazil ran well enough over this trip at Down Royal to warrant another shot at it.
The Aga Khan runs two, with Timourid setting the standard, though he has yet to prove himself at this trip and preference is for PHOENIX COWBOY, who still appeared quite green when finishing strongly over this trip at Fairyhouse.
Eaglemont is a likely improver now upped in trip, while one not really bred for it is Shoshone Warrior, who makes a somewhat belated seasonal return and for whom the market could prove the best guide.
A typically competitive handicap at this venue, but TENTH AMENDMENT looks most interesting. He returned to form at the Curragh last time when only beaten one length and he’s taken to build on that run making just his fourth start since 2018.
British Art has been in good form over hurdles of late and he looks feasibly handicapped on his return to the level.
A wide-open handicap to end the card, but the pick is FINAL ENDEAVOUR who may have got off lightly with a 1lb rise for his latest effort behind a well handicapped sort.
Guido Reni is more consistent than most of his rivals and should be thereabouts once again, while Loingseoir produced a career best last time and may be able to build on that run.
