Eddie Lynam excels with his sprinters and there was plenty to like about the debut of HEAVENLY POWER who gave the impression he would come on for his debut fourth at Naas last month behind rivals who had the benefit of experience. Stablemate, Collective Power, isn’t ruled out if a gelding procedure has had the desired effect. From the newcomers, Cheval Blanc is by far the most interesting.
The Cola Kid only has a 3lb rise to cope with for his recent success and She’s In The Game went close here last time. However, preference is for STRANGE TIMES who might be suited by this new trip and she’s entitled to come on for her recent return at Roscommon.
Pretty Smart and Poet’s Pride are two consistent sorts who should go well again but they might be vulnerable to the well handicapped DRAGONS CALL. She had Pretty Smart in behind last time out when narrowly denied and she’s still 12lb below her last winning handicap mark.
With an official rating of 90 LOVEDAY sets a decent standard here though her two most recent runs have failed to match the form of her Listed second behind the smart Castle Star at the Curragh in May. She may be tested here by the once-raced pair Messa Concertata and Volarossa.
Nathan Crosse’s 5lb claim will take the sting out of the 3lb extra incurred by JUNGLE JANE for her second to That’s Mad at Bellewstown, and she is tipped to turn the tables. Frenetic was a good juvenile and is a potentially a cut above these rivals, but she has to bounce back from a disappointing seasonal debut. Provocateuse may continue to improve but is 12lb higher than when winning at the Curragh on Sunday.
Tactics will be crucial here but slight preference is for the more experienced REBEL STEP, a 91-rated colt meeting 89-rated filly Talacre on level terms.
This will not take much winning, and ROCK CHANT (nap) appears to have the best form by virtue of a fourth placing over a longer trip at Limerick. The once-raced Premium Ticket possibly has more potential for improvement than any of the others. See The Love looks best of Jessica Harrington’s pair. Colin Keane rides unknown quantity Dragon Gem.
There was not much betwen SPEEDY PIX and Dynakite over 1m at Killarney, but the longer trip may favour Tom McCourt’s filly. It looked as if Fast Celt did not stay 1m4f at Bellewstown after running too freely and she may do better at 1m2f. El C Wells, another who was too keen last time, is better judged on two previous placed runs here.
