There was plenty to like about the debut of ALARM CALL when fourth at Naas on debut and the yard’s runners usually come on plenty for their first outing.
Iva Batt had excuses last time and may be capable of progress, while Colfer Kay is another to consider after another promising second last week.
A modest affair. Top-weight Abogodas is one of the most exposed, but at least has showed an ability to run to his current mark and down in trip could be hard to beat.
However, VIV VANCE may have that bit more scope for improvement, her Curragh run represented marked improvement and she should be well suited by this shorter trip. Ablah appears next best.
It’s been a frustrating season for TEDDY BOY who has hit the frame no fewer than eight times this term, but he’s returning to the scene of his only previous success and one of these looks likely to fall his way before long.
Pillar lurks on a dangerous mark and last year’s winner Doonard Prince is another to consider.
Plenty with chances and luck in running may not be such an issue with this relatively small field.
MIACOMET hasn’t the greatest strike rate but has been a model of consistency of late and holds Tide Of Time on recent course and distance form.
Top-weight Inflection Point rates a definite threat, while the likes of Stanhope and Boughtinthedark could both bounce back from below-par runs of late.
Several with chances, slight preference for EMPORIO to build on a promising debut when not knocked around. Xeres probably shades it on form, while Laelaps comes into the mix after a good run at Listowel.
National Ballet seems sure to have come on a lot for his debut run, while any market support for the newcomers Guest and Team Of Firsts should be noted.
Having flown home on her handicap debut to finish third at Killarney on Sunday, having had no luck in running, FEARLESS GIRL (NAP) makes a quick return and could prove the one to beat given a trouble-free passage. The most lightly raced in the field, she should have plenty more to offer and handles this ground.
Sasta has been in fine form but this shorter trip and an 11lb rise for her most recent win could prove her undoing, while little separated Passing Trade and Memyselfandmoi at Listowel and both should be thereabouts.
A case can be made for a few of these, but ALLY CAY might be the most interesting having returned to form when last seen on the Flat and she should handle conditions fine here.
It was an encouraging effort from Stay With Me when making her belated return last time out and she might be the main danger to the selection.
A competitive finale but NEWGIRLINTOWN posted a career best at Dundalk last time out and had previously been in good form prior to that.
She’s taken to get the better of Day Dreamin’ who seems to be improving for the switch to handicaps this year.
