The Murphy runners were flying high here on day one and perhaps KAARANAH is the value in this difficult maiden.
Quite nicely bred, he neither started nor ended the race too well at Tipperary but did well in between and can progress. Clearly Yarrawonga could outclass these.
PROCELLARUM, whose half-brother was a smart horse for Donnacha O’Brien’s grandfather and later for his father, might bounce back here.
Joseph O’Brien’s Zoffany’s Delight, another Zoffany, looks more solid and should stay in an intriguing nursery.
INSIGNIA OF RANK, previously a Listed winner, might prove the class act here. Facethepuckout is also respected, while better is expected from the bottom weight Maude Gone Spirit.
UP HELLY AA has been off for 11 months, but was not going to be rushed and remains a very exciting horse for Willie McCreery.
Presuming he is not friendless in the market, he must have a great chance of going close. Helvic Dream is rock-solid.
Disappointing at Gowran Park on her recent start, SUMMER’S DREAM was a good second here previously from a poor draw, and with a nice trap in three, if she comes back to that sort of form she could well shade the verdict.
Philly’s Hope lacks a little bit of early speed and tends to be ridden for luck. She is a game filly and if she gets the gaps, won’t be far away. Voyageofdiscovery is another lively one.
Divine Celt was a beaten favourite here on Wednesday but if over her exertions, she can be expected to have a good crack at recouping the losses. Pimstrel carries some solid credentials into the race and with a nice draw in three, she should be bang there again.
However, DRAGON OF MALTA, also reasonably well drawn, has shown enough of late to suggest he can open his account sooner rather than later and is given the nod.
PERRY OWENS (NAP) could be very well-treated here after looking in need of distance in a maiden hurdle last week. He makes plenty of appeal.
Full Moon Magic could easily win again after a messy outing at Leopardstown.
WESTERN VICTORY could offer some value here, especially if it turns into a bit of a slog, which would not be ideal for Mt Leinster, who beat her at Galway.
Possibly the market leader, Wonder Laish and Grandmaster Flash are also feared.
