Promising individual. Third of 8 in maiden at Naas (5f, good to firm, 25/1) on debut. Off 118 days. May well do better.

Verdict

WESTERN FRONTIER shaped with plenty of promise when third over the extended 5f here on debut and is a likely improver now granted this extra yardage with the benefit of a run behind him. The pick of the remainder may be Third Of March, who is expected to step up on her debut effort at Naas, though any money for Dermot Weld's newcomer, Tuo Sogno, would also be interesting.

Verdict

WESTERN FRONTIER makes loads of appeal on pedigree, cost plenty at the Breeze-Ups and was a highly promising newcomer amidst inexperience over C&D on debut, so he can improve enough to get off the mark at the expense at the expense of stablemate Captainofthebounty, who has a fascinating pedigree (by War Front out of a speedy Australian mare) and will also come on for his first run.

Fairly useful filly. Career best when winning 11-runner nursery at Cork (6.3f, good, 9/2) 11 days ago, suited by increase in trip.

Verdict

NEVER NO MORE built on his debut second at Naas when striking at Dundalk over 5f nine days ago. Providing the turnaround doesn't prove too tight, he's expected to improve for this extra furlong and take this rise in grade in his stride. Angelic Light found Group 1 company too hot to handle last time but makes more appeal on her earlier Curragh maiden win. Eclipse Storm, who made a winning debut at Naas last month, is another worthy of a market check.

Verdict

NEVER NO MORE continued his exciting sire's excellent season when readily taking care of a novice field at Dundalk last time and should have little problem following up in what looks like a sub-standard listed race. The way Nitro Boost went through the race last time suggests he's going to keep improving and Recon Mission should be considered, too.

Verdict

LOST TREASURE was only beaten by a length when fifth in the l'Abbaye last weekend and is evidently capable of holding his own against older horses. This assignment doesn't appear anything like as taxing and if he reproduces the form he should take all of the beating. C&D winner Downforce is back from a break and is respected on these terms, while recent 7f Group 3 second Smash Williams and Ayr Silver Cup winner Snazzy Jazzy are others to consider.

Verdict

LOST TREASURE rose to the massive challenge set for him in the Prix de l'Abbaye last week and, if he's in anything like the same form, he's going to take all the beating dropping back in grade here. Smash Williams is a smart and consistent operator, so he and the improving Snazzy Jazzy could be on hand to take advantage if the selection fluffs his lines.

Verdict

Mercury has been in good form this season in these big-field handicaps and should put in another solid display, while Dash D'Or beat him at Naas last time but wouldn't want any rainfall. Eleuthera was the one to take from the race when fourth at Ayr in August, but this can go the way of AMARETTO STONE, who has gone up 10lb for her recent maiden third but has more to offer as a sprinter.

Verdict

ART OF UNTIY looked refreshed by a break last time and he's on a winnable mark now, so it's worth taking a chance on hi to get the better of the in-form Mercury in a race where almost all the others have questions to answer. Lapilli is another who shouldn't be ignored as he slides down the weights.

Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has won this race seven times in the last 10 years, and his dominance can continue here courtesy of PEACH TREE. The pick of Donnacha O'Brien and dropping in class after finding the Group 2 May Hill too hot to handle at Doncaster last time, she previously looked progressive and has a nice profile for this event. Tarnawa was unlucky not to get off the mark at Tipperary last time, while Fancy Feat bumped into a nice sort at Dundalk last month and also merits consideration.

Verdict

ACCORDANCE only found the exciting Antonio de Vega too good in the Prestige Stakes at Goodwood and, while she was a little underwhelming since, it looks significant that her expert handler thought it worth making the trip over for this. She gets the marginal vote ahead of Peach Tree in a tricky one to fathom, with Elleanthus likely to get back on track to mount a challenge of her own.
