1,600,000 gns Galileo half-sister to very smart winner up to 7f Garswood. 7/2, second of 11 in maiden at Newmarket (7f, good) on debut 28 days ago, caught further back than ideal. Hard to oppose.

1,600,000 gns Galileo half-sister to very smart winner up to 7f Garswood. 7/2, second of 11 in maiden at Newmarket (7f, good) on debut 28 days ago, caught further back than ideal. Hard to oppose.

Verdict

ZAGITOVA is a Galileo half-sister to Garswood that cost 1,600,000gns as a yearling and she caught the eye when finishing second on her debut at Newmarket last month. If she improves for that run, like so many Ballydoyle representatives do, she will be very hard to beat. At Last is a stablemate of the selection and she is a half-sister to the Australian Group 1 winner Zoustar, while Baladiya and For Your Eyes are other newcomers to note.

Verdict

1.6 million-purchase ZAGITOVA ran a race full of promise on her debut at Newmarket last month, caught further back than ideal, and will be hard to beat if improving on that as expected stepped up in trip. Baladiya, At Last and For Your Eyes are all interesting newcomers.

Verdict

Claim The Lady put in a promising debut performance when finishing third at Killarney last month and he can be expected to go well once again. That said, the preference is for MOUNT EVEREST, who is from an outstanding family. The full-brother to Yucatan caught the eye when staying on into sixth on his debut at the Curragh last month and he should improve markedly for that experience. Girolamo is another with strong form claims, while Ozone is the pick of the newcomers.

Verdict

MOUNT EVEREST was as big an eye-catcher as they come on his debut at the Curragh, shaping well from a poor position and finishing with a ton of running left under hand riding. The form of that race is excellent and he is the one to beat. Claim The Lady's Killarney debut form is also hot and he is the clear danger.

Debut winner at Naas in June. Stepped up on that when third of 4 in novice at Naas (1m, good) 17 days ago. Strong chance there's more to come after only 2 starts.

Verdict

PANSTARR bumped into a high-class three-year-old filly when finishing second at Galway earlier in the month but that form gives her a big chance in a race of this nature. Alexios Komnenos has yet to find his best form in 2018 but he has been highly tried and can be given another chance. Kerineya remains unexposed and merits a shot in this grade, while Making Light and Pincheck are others to consider.

Verdict

PINCHECK ran a cracker when runner-up at Group 3-level at Leopardstown last time and a repeat may be good enough to see him resume winning ways. Panstarr has gone close at this level on her last 2 outings and looks sure to be bang there again, while Kerineya is useful already and should have more to offer after only 2 starts.

Useful filly. Career best when dead-heating with Cimeara in listed race at Leopardstown (14f, good to soft) 16 days ago. Should continue to give a good account.

Verdict

KALAXANA is a highly-progressive three-year-old filly and her Listed victory last time out suggests she could make her mark at this level. Turret Rocks brings the best form to the table, having beaten Deauville over 1m1f at Leopardstown last month, but the trip is a slight concern and she has to carry a 3lb penalty. Bloomfield did not run to form last time out but she is a player based on her previous performances.

Verdict

KALAXANA is very much going the right way and can take the next step up the ladder in her stride having been successful at listed level last time. Bloomfield was a bit disappointing last time but had done very well at listed/Group 3 level this term prior to that and will be a threat if bouncing back to her best. The Meld winner Turret Rocks is also respected.

Latest win at Fairyhouse in June. 3¼ lengths fourth of 7 to My Silver Nails in handicap at Roscommon (7.2f, good to firm, 10/1) 33 days ago, never nearer. Must improve.

Verdict

Honor Oak bolted up by eight lengths over the extended mile at Galway last time and is interesting over a shorter trip known to suit. She does have a 12lb rise in the ratings to contend with, however, so preference is instead for KAILEE, who is rated only 1lb higher than when thwarted by a neck in second over this trip at the Curragh last month. Dream Ascot struck on debut at Killarney last month and is worth a market check off an opening mark of 82 on her handicap bow.

Verdict

A tight handicap that could go to HONOR OAK, who posted a huge career best when winning at Galway recently and who is sure to go close again if in similar form. Dream Ascot made the perfect start at Killarney and the sky is the limit for her. Last year's winner Stormy Belle could be set for a big run after catching the eye last week.

Thrice-raced maiden, seemingly hard to train, raced just 3 times in 3 seasons. Off 92 days. Makes handicap debut.

Verdict

DANDYS GOLD battled on well to score by a head over the extended 6f here last time and is a likely improver now granted this extra yardage. Ishebayorgrey picked up minor money over 7f off this mark on his penultimate outing at Leopardstown and is capable of playing a supporting role, likewise Stamp Of Authority, who returned to winning ways off 8lb lower at Gowran last time out.

Verdict

Hard to be completely confident about any, but STAMP OF AUTHORITY is in fine form at least and might be able to defy his latest rise for his Gowran win. Dandys Gold struck here when last seen and could be in the money again. Thiswaycadeaux may also have a say.
