14:00 – Cheerupsleepyjean

Cheerupsleepyjean looks the obvious one but I will be factoring Yet into bouncing back in this one. I expect Ryan Moore to ride well on Yet to write them off at your peril.

14:30 – Blairmayne

Hathiq is plummeting down the ratings from the horse we saw in 2019 to where we are now. He’s down to 96 to 83 but can you really trust him? I don’t think so. At six furlongs, Blairmayne is in with a big shout. He ran really well here at Champions weekend last year. He’s off a mark of 83 and Blairmayne could run a big race for Shane Foley.

15:05 – Lord Riddiford

I’m going for Lord Riddiford, who I thought ran reasonably well in the dash at Epsom behind Mokaatil. He was a little unlucky not to finish a little closer. He has the raw speed and Ryan Moore takes the ride for John Quinn.

15:40 – Cayenne Pepper

Logic keeps bringing me back to Cayenne Pepper in this one. She absolutely tore up here last year and a reproduction of that run will be sufficient to get the win.

16:10 – Passion

It’s hard to have a strong opinion on this one because how do you fancy Amhran Na Bhfiann? He could barely do the job as pacemaker in the Ascot Gold Cup last week. Pondus was second here in a handicap and then you look at Passion. Her two runs behind Wonderful Tonight probably reads strong and maybe she’s the one to beat but it’s a hard choice. If I had to bet on this one, I’d back Passion.

16:45 – Mosala

Mosala will do me in this one, who is going up in trip. Up to a mile and a half for Henry de Bromhead after running over one mile and two furlongs last time out at Leopardstown. Won before that at Dundalk and a couple of second-place finishes prior to that.

Ruby Walsh’s tips summary:

14:00 – Cheerupsleepyjean
14:30 – Blairmayne
15:05 – Lord Riddiford
15:40 – Cayenne Pepper
16:10 – Passion
16:45 – Mosala
