Colour Sergeant bids to make it third time lucky and comes into this off the back of a solid effort over the C&D.
But, IOWA has the potential to improve past these after posting a lovely debut here back in June.
Thunder Moon is worth keeping a close eye on as he won a barrier trial in good style last week.
Dacesa is the only winner in the race and her Down Royal effort looks quite good now, but the top-weight PROCELLARUM (NAP) is hard to get away from and may prove hard to beat.
Tar Heel is also respected.
A fascinating race. Aidan O’Brien bids for a 17th success, with the maiden St Mark’s Basilica the most likely of his trio. British raiders Ventura Tormenta and The Lir Jet add to the intrigue, with the latter fancied to turn the tables on their run in France.
However, LUCKY VEGA did little wrong in the Railway Stakes behind Laws Of Indices when returning from a mid-season break and he should be much straighter for that.
Steel Bull was supplemented at a cost of €20,000 but the trip might catch him out, while the filly Aloha Star is also respected.
After a sluggish start to her season, MILLISLE came good in a Group 3 at Naas just over a fortnight ago and that will have done her confidence the world of good.
She will be difficult to beat getting weight from Speak In Colours, while Sonaiyla is open to more progression and Forever In Dreams needs to bounce back.
Not an attractive betting heat. The blinkered TAGGALO has one of these in her and is a hopeful pick.
Adjust wouldn’t have to be a star to win on debut. Meanwhile, Boundless Power, Mudawy and I Am Thunder are also respected.
It would be no surprise if Hell Left Loose turned out to be better than his mark of 55, but ALL ABOUT IVY makes most appeal at the prices. The form of her latest fourth working out well and the addition of blinkers a possible catalyst for improvement.
Mikey Sheehy’s claim takes her down to a low 8st 3lb, so she gets the nod to continue Ken Condon’s fine season. Teddy Boy and Bahlwan are clearly capable if all falls right, while Maggie Thunder would be respected if getting in.
Another fine opportunity for So Wonderful to open her account, but she is 0-14 and hard to have complete faith in.
ZOFAR ZOGOOD won’t be found wanting for experience, handles a variety of ground and is clearly in good heart at present.
She can get off the mark for a stable in top form at present. Stablemate Sagrada Familia shouldn’t be far away again, elsewhere Lady Anner fired a warning shot last time and warrants respect.
A tasty affair to close the card, with preference for CARRYTHEONE, who is still pretty unexposed and could prove to be able to hold his own at a higher level.
Fellow three-year-old Protagonist looks his biggest danger if handling the drop in trip, while Frank Arthur is a rock-solid option to be on the premises at the business end.
Don’t discount Mythologic, who is better than he showed last time at Galway.
