Foaled February 28. 9,500 gns foal, £18,000 yearling, Sepoy filly. Half-sister to useful winner up to 7.4f Peak Princess.

Verdict

A chance is taken on PARKERS HILL, who has just a head to find with North Wind on their distance clash at Naas in early May and is open to greater improvement. National Guard had the latter over two lengths behind when fourth and seventh respectively in a Curragh maiden 18 days ago and should have the measure of his stablemate again, while the remaining trio all look up against it.

Verdict

NATIONAL GUARD left his debut form behind when fourth at the Curragh last time and can improve again and strike at the third time of asking. There was plenty to like about Parkers Hill's debut effort at Naas and he can build on that and provide the main threat ahead of the selection's stablemate North Wind.

Fifth of 14 in maiden (11/10) at Dundalk (7f) on debut, never nearer. Off 7 months. Open to improvement.

Verdict

Quinns Red Rose and Tough Spirit weren't split by much when third and sixth respectively in a Gowran maiden last month and that pair both warrant respect, while Proud And Elated and Mnemonic Alexander are others to note. However, the experienced runners don't set the bar overly high so it might pay to side with Dermot Weld's newcomer RAMBLING. She is certainly bred to have plenty of ability, being a half-sister to five winners, and will know her job on debut.

Verdict

SCRIOBH NUA is clearly held in pretty high regard given she contested the Irish 1000 Guineas on just her second start, and though she predictably struggled that day, she's surely capable of winning a maiden. Quinns Red Rose and Tough Spirit are sure-fire improvers and feared most.

Highly promising type. Won 10-runner maiden (8/10) at Del Mar (6.5f). Off 9 months. First run for yard after leaving Bob Baffert. Wears tongue strap. Open to significant progress.

Verdict

True Valour has posted two solid efforts in Group 3 company already this year and makes plenty of appeal with first-time cheekpieces equipped, while Ardhoomey merits consideration dropping down a level. The most interesting runner by far, however, and receiving the vote, is Aidan O'Brien's US import ST PATRICK'S DAY. The form of September's Del Mar success is rock-solid with the runner-up since fourth in the 144th Kentucky Derby and he can land this prize before going onto bigger and better things.

Verdict

The Del Mar maiden won by ST PATRICK'S DAY in September worked out very well, and assuming he's as effective on turf, he could be a top recruit for Aidan O'Brien (holds several Group 1 entries). Were the selection fail to live up to expectations, True Valour looks the obvious one to take advantage,

Lightly-raced maiden. 33/1, 11½ lengths eighth of 11 to Bucky Larson in maiden at this C&D (good to soft) 32 days ago. Makes handicap debut.

Verdict

BUCKY LARSON has been brought along steadily by Ger Lyons and he got off the mark over C&D at the third time of asking when looking to appreciate a more patient ride. An opening mark of 83 looks workable and he remains open to further improvement. Rapture's Delight benefited from a drop in trip last time when winning at Gowran and should have no issue returning to a mile, while Editorial can prove better than what he showed last time behind London Icon at Navan.

Verdict

RAPTURE'S DELIGHT looks to have been let in lightly off a mark of 80 considering the strength of his debut form so, having got off the mark in comfortable fashion at Gowran last time, he boasts excellent claims of following up. Editorial is another one with plenty of potential and Dream of Words has to be respected bidding for her third success of the campaign.

Fairly useful gelding. Career best when winning 20-runner handicap (11/2) at this course (8f, good) 20 days ago, readily. Back up in trip. Bound to remain competitive.

Verdict

WATERBOY won in the style of a well handicapped horse when bolting up here over a mile at the end of last month and shaping on that occasion as though a step up to 1m2f would pose no problems. He is 7lb higher as a result but he has the potential to keep on improving. Claregate Street arrives having shown decent form on her recent outings and is respected once again, while Casla might have more to offer having shaped encouragingly on her first start for new connections over C&D last time.

Verdict

WATERBOY looked to have a bit up his sleeve when winning a competitive affair at this course last time and, with the return to this trip unlikely to be an issue, he should go well in the follow-up bid. Claregate Street arrives in excellent form and has to be respected along with the lightly-raced Casla.
