This is very weak and if the relatively experienced DON JULIO runs up to his official rating of 76 it should be enough. With Paddy Harnett’s 7lbs claim factored in, he gets 9lbs from It Might Be You, whose Sligo third was respectable in the context of a race like this. Ardluasa is respected on trainer form, and Gold Lunula may be good enough to feature on her debut.
Aidan O’Brien, who has won six of the last eight editions of this maiden, appears to have a likely sort this time in the shape of promising Curragh second HISTORY. Karkiyna boasts form involving the smart Agartha. Panama Island looks capable of reaching the money.
Tom Hogan has succeeded in getting former smart juvenile NEBO back to a very respectable level of form. Twice successful this term, he has better recent credentials than Speak In Colours who needs to arrest an apparent decline. Shandra and Geometrical have been struggling this season.
A Group 1 juvenile winner last year, PRETTY GORGEOUS, who is unpenalised here, ran well enough in an ultra-competitive Falmouth Stakes to suggest a strong chance of a first 2021 success. She faces two dangerous older rivals in the shape of British raider Parent’s Prayer and the identically-rated Pearls Galore. Loch Lein may prove second-best among the younger fillies.
A three-year-old has won the last three editions of this race, but before that there was a long period of domination by older sprinters. The older generation can prevail here courtesy of URBAN BEAT (NAP), who backed up a major Curragh handicap win with a fine effort in a York race won the subsequent Nunthorpe winner Winter Power. Frenetic may prove best of the three-year-olds, though Steel Bull could eclipse him if recapturing his best juvenile form.
CATHERINE CHROI could offer value in a trappy race, seeking a first Turf win. Cool Leader has more upside than most. Castle Stable’s yard switch is noteworthy potentially.
DHA LEATH has been a bit disappointing, but could be the one to take advantage of a drop in grade. She’s Good Company has to be respected.
MADE FOR MINDS is interesting here stepped up in yardage for a team having a good season. Also respected is Kannoor, who drops back in trip after a fine run last time.
