Promising sort. Third of 8 in maiden at Navan (5f, good to firm, 25/1) on debut 29 days ago, unable to sustain effort. May well do better.

Verdict

ROCKVIEW SPIRIT outran odds of 25-1 to finish third in a good maiden at Navan last month and she is hard to oppose with improvement likely to be forthcoming with that experience under her belt. Chestnut Express should find this easier than the Listed race that she contested on her debut and she could prove to be the main threat. Nitro Boost, Carbon Fibre and Cuileann are all newcomers to note.

Verdict

ROCKVIEW SPIRIT shaped well when third on debut at Navan and sets the standard on that form. Newcomers Carbon Fibre and Cuileann need keeping an eye on.

Verdict

Fozzy Stack's pair ASTROSPEED and Miss Margarita finished third and sixth over course and distance in a race where the winner has franked the form by racking up a hat-trick, and the first-named Choisir colt is backed to leave his recent Fairyhouse disappointment behind him now back at five furlongs. Elegant Lass produced a career best at Naas last time, while Hot Stone is an interesting runner who encounters good ground for the first time.

Verdict

RUN THE DAY has taken big steps with each run and still has further room for improvement, so gets the nod over Ajmera, who was a bit disappointing last time. Hot Stone is best of the others.

Foaled February 9. 115,000 gns foal, €380,000 yearling, Camelot filly. Sister to smart 1½m winner Latrobe and half-sister to winner up to 7f Diamond Fields and 1¼m-1½m winner Entangling.

Verdict

Pink Dogwood has an exciting pedigree being a full-sister to Irish Derby hero Latrobe, but she lacks racecourse experience which the majority of her rivals have. Ger Lyons has had a fantastic start with his association with Juddmonte and his FULMINATE warrants plenty of respect. The daughter of Charm Spirit got off the mark on debut at Fairyhouse when showing a good attitude to see off Coral Beach and the extra furlong can see her take another step forward. Lady Kaya showed good promise when third on debut and is noted along with Dragon Roll.

Verdict

LADY KAYA shaped like a useful prospect when third on debut here 2 months ago and this extra 1f should bring out improvement. Penalised-winners Fulminate and Dragon Roll are likely dangers.

Verdict

The two that standout are Advertise and SERGEI PROKOFIEV after the pair were only split by a neck in the Coventry at Royal Ascot. The former came out on top on that occasion and has subsequently won the July Stakes, but he may have to settle for second today. Aidan O'Brien has won 16 of the last 20 renewals of this contest and Sergei Prokofiev did not get the clearest of runs at Ascot, while this 6f trip is less of a stamina test and that should also suit. Indigo Balance should not be completely discounted after his Coventry run but he obviously has plenty to find with the aforementioned pair, while So Perfect is the pick of the remainder.

Verdict

A potential match between ADVERTISE and Sergei Prokofiev. There wasn't much between the pair when placed in the Coventry at Royal Ascot but Advertise has since enhanced his profile by winning the July Stakes at Newmarket and is taken to come out on top again.

Verdict

SPIRIT OF VALOR was far from disgraced when sixth over 7f in the Lennox and makes plenty of appeal, back in this lower grade, on his Greenlands second to Merchant Navy in May. Aidan O'Brien won this race 12 months ago with Washington DC and the selection, his trainer's sole representative this year, appears favourably treated on these terms. Urban Beat is improving sharply and could figure if handling the forecast faster ground. Gorane and Now You're Talking are others with place possibilities.

Verdict

SPIRIT OF VALOR wasn't beaten far in the Lennox at Goodwood 12 days ago and can get off the mark for the season back down to a Group 3. Speak In Colours and Urban Beat are feared most.

Tenth of 11 in maiden (20/1) at Tipperary (5f, soft). Off 10 months.

Verdict

GOPSIES DAUGHTER built on her 5f victory at Navan last month when beaten by under two lengths into fifth over 6f here. The return to the minimum trip is expected to suit Denis Hogan's seven-year-old, who shades the vote ahead of recent second Caesar's Comet, who is now rated 2lb higher but dropping back from 7f should help. Haqeeba has been raised 3lb for her half-length success at Down Royal last month and is also expected to remain competitive.

Verdict

The handicapper has given ENTER THE RED a chance having quickly dropped him back to a mark lower than when successful at Navan on his final start last term and he's taken to build on his Listowel return and resume winning ways. Caesar's Comet ran well on both outings for Peter Fahey and should go close if continuing in the same vein for Denis Hogan. Down Royal scorer Haqeeba is also shortlisted.

Verdict

Joseph O'Brien boasts a strong hand here saddling three runners with real chances including course and distance winners Band of Outlaws and Medal Of Honour, though the best of his trio may be the Shamardal three-year-old Tremendous Leap, who has made the podium on all six outings so far. Scoil Naisiunta has to be respected considering her record over this trip, but preference is for the in-from LETHAL POWER, who had two of these behind him when winning at Leopardstown last time and should have more to give.

Verdict

MEDAL OF HONOUR disappointed last time but is given another chance having won in good style over this C&D on return. Wild As The Wind and Lethal Power head the dangers.
