Verdict

Aidan O'Brien unleashes three extremely well-bred fillies who all displayed some sort of promise at juveniles and they should all improve this year. The pick of his trio is BROADWAY, a Galileo half-sister to Danedream, who finished fourth on her debut over 6f at Naas last June. That trip was never going to suit this filly and she has a much stronger chance this afternoon. Magic Wand was well beaten over 1m here in October and this half-sister to Chicquita should only improve for that experience, while Athena appears to be the third string. Claiomh Geal, Jaega and Shannow are newcomers who warrant consideration.

Verdict

Plenty of these hold big-race entries, including MAGIC WAND, a big eye-catcher on debut here in October and who looks open to significant improvement as her stamina is drawn out. She can make a successful return before having her sights raised. Fellow Ballydoyle inmates Broadway and Athena are both of obvious interest, as are Jim Bolger's Claiomh Geal and Dermot Weld's Jaega.

Verdict

GARDENS OF BABYLON outran odds of 20/1 to finish third on his debut over 1m here in October and the second from that race was only beaten a neck at Naas on Friday. The son of Camelot is entitled to improve as a three-year-old and a first-time tongue-tie may bring about further improvement in him. Change Of Velocity finished fifth in a maiden here last July that has worked out extremely well and he could pose the biggest threat to the selection. Sir Erec has a similar profile to his stablemate but his form is not quite as strong. while any market support for Khalaab would have to be noted.

Verdict

GARDENS OF BABYLON made a highly-promising debut here in October and should be hard to beat with improvement forthcoming on his return. Change of Velocity likely has more to offer for Godolphin, while Khalaab is an interesting newcomer.

Verdict

BIGGER AND BETTER only found one too good on his debut for these connections last October and, while he disappointed next time out, the son of Fastnet Rock can be given a good chance in a moderate event. Balanced Approach showed some promise when finishing fourth at Naas on Friday and he has a chance if that run has not left a mark on him. Others to note are Claregate Street, Hernandoshideaway and Rosin Box.

Verdict

BIGGER AND BETTER could be a winner waiting to happen in handicaps for Tony Martin and is taken to make a successful return. Ace of Diamonds won here first time up last season and could go well. Claregate Street may also make her presence felt.

Useful filly. Three wins from 11 runs last year. Very good ½-length second of 7 to Making Light in Park Express Stakes (13/2) at Naas (8f, heavy) 22 days ago. Looks competitive on form.

Verdict

BRENDAN BRACKAN won the Irish Lincolnshire on his seasonal return last year and he ended that campaign by beating Onenightidreamed in this grade at Cork. The second is 6lb better off with the selection today but that may not be enough to reverse the form. Panstarr ran well to finish second in a Group 3 last month and she can go well if improving for that first run of the season.

Verdict

PANSTARR very nearly resumed winning ways in an up-to-scratch renewal of the Park Express Stakes at Naas last month, and she appeals as the sort to do better still this year. Brendan Brackan is a proven performer at this level so has to be respected on return, while Pincheck is another who may well have more to offer this campaign.

Third of 14 in maiden at Dundalk (7f, 33/1) on debut, not knocked about. Off 6 months. Open to improvement.

Verdict

Raintree, Shareva and Tammy Wynette all have to be respected give their proven form but the level they set is not very high and that means that a chance can be taken with a newcomer. SCRIOBH NUA is closely related to multiple black-type performers, including Gile Na Greine and Cuis Ghaire. She lacks race experience but Jim Bolger is more than capable of getting one ready first time out. Simiyna is a half-sister to the 2m Listed winner Silwana and she also shares her page with the Derby/Arc winner Sinndar.

Verdict

SCRIOBH NUA is bred to be at least useful, and her sales price/multiple-Group entries back that theory up, so she could easily be up to the job on debut. This looks a pretty deep 3-y-o maiden though, with Shareva more than capable of winning races.

Verdict

DAWN HOOFER ran well in some competitive maidens as a juvenile and a mark of 70 may underestimate her ability, especially as she may improve as a three-year-old. Scorpion Black disappointed a couple of times over 6f last year and he ran his best race over 1m. This trip may still be on the sharp side for the son of Shamardal but the switch to handicap company should help his chances. Beach Wedding, Bronze Age and Vinnie's Wish are others who can go well.

Verdict

This could be a 3-y-o handicap to keep an eye on, with SEBASTIANO RICCI offered to build on the promise of his reappearance at Naas last week. Bronze Age and Vinnie's Wish figure on attractive marks on the pick of their juvenile form and the market may prove revealing.
