Verdict

TIPLE displayed plenty of promise when fifth in a competitive maiden at the Curragh on her debut late last month. The way she finished off that race suggested she would improve for the experience, and be difficult to beat in a race of this nature. Vhagar and Dingle Bay appear to be the main threats to the selection based on their previous performances, while Gold Memory is a newcomer to note.

Verdict

TIPLE shaped well in what is traditionally a strong fillies maiden at the Curragh on debut and has a lot going for her. Gold Memory is a newcomer to note, while Vhagar seems sure to have a race in him.

Verdict

Jessica Harrington has trained the winner of this race twice in the last three years and she has a big chance with CHANNEL STUFFER this time around. The son of Kitten's Joy, the sire of Roaring Lion and Hawkbill, met trouble in running when second on his debut at Naas and he can only improve for that experience. Motashakel and Syrena are obvious threats having also filled the runner-up position last time out, while Estrella, a half-sister to US Grade 1 winner Zhukova, and Ger Lyons' Dumouriez both merit market inspections.

Verdict

SYRENA took a big step forward when second at Bellewstown a fortnight ago and looks set for another big run. The form of Motashakel's Curragh second has worked out and he demands plenty of respect. Estrella is a newcomer to note.

16/1, ninth of 20 in handicap at Navan (5f, good to firm) 5 days ago. Significantly back up in trip. Tongue strap back on. Others have achieved more.

Verdict

ARBOURFIELD won at Gowran back in May and his last couple of efforts, including a third-placed finish at Bellewstown 15 days ago, suggest that he can be successful off his current mark. Dance Alone is another whose recent form offers plenty of encouragement regarding his chances, while others to consider in a wide-open event are Coreczka, Kodi Koh and Storm Ranger.

Verdict

STORM RANGER was successful from a higher mark last year and took a firm step back in the right direction last time, so this could be the day he gets back to winning ways in an open race. Arbourfield is consistent on the whole and deserves respect along with the lightly-raced Tush.

7/2, won 14-runner maiden at Gowran (9.4f, good) 25 days ago. Stable in good form. Big step forward required, but her pedigree gives her plenty of scope.

Verdict

HAZAPOUR ran a big race to finish fifth in the Epsom Derby last month, despite not appearing to see out the extended 1m4f trip. He won the Derrinstown Derby Trial over 1m2f here on his seasonal debut and is hard to oppose. Deauville has been a bit disappointing of late but he is an obvious threat to the selection, while Turret Rocks looks best of the remaining trio.

Verdict

HAZAPOUR looked a serious threat in the Derby for a long way before lack of stamina became an issue so, dropping back in grade, he's an obvious choice to get back to winning ways here at the expense of Deauville, who has achieved a little bit more than the selection, but is also much more exposed.

Verdict

NATIONAL GLORY has been knocking on the door and Joseph O'Brien's 160,000-euro purchase can go one better than his neck second at Fairyhouse last time. John Oxx's Waikuku has to be respected following his fifth in a decent Curragh maiden 11 months ago, while Dermot Weld's Camelot newcomer Castle Chase cost 110,000 euros as a yearling and is a half-brother to two Group 2 winners.

Verdict

NATIONAL GLORY boasts the benefit of plenty of experience and went close to shedding the maiden tag over this trip at Fairyhouse 11 days ago, just undone by a stronger stayer. He can get off the mark, with Waikuku and newcomer Castle Chase others to consider.

Latest win at Sligo in May. 7/2, creditable second of 6 in handicap at Bellewstown (7.8f, good to firm) 15 days ago. Yard in good form. Fancied to remain competitive.

Verdict

Joseph O'Brien's three-time winner WAITINGFORTHEDAY has his optimum conditions, and the past course scorer can extend her winning run under a 6lb penalty for her latest success at Dundalk. Navan winner Betsey Trotter only found the well-fancied Sirjack Thomas too good at Sligo last time and is sure to be involved here, while Premier League and Gasta are others who have gone well of late and merit consideration.

Verdict

A competitive 3-y-o affair with the narrow vote in favour of MILITRY DECORATION. A winner at Dundalk in October, he didn't shape at all badly back at that venue in April and he is open to further progress back on turf. The red-hot Waitingfortheday and Betsey Trotter are a couple of others worth considering.

Verdict

BLACK LABEL was only beaten half-a-length over a similar trip at Fairyhouse and he could take some stopping off just 1lb higher. Jessica Harrington's Bit Of Banter enjoyed the step up to 1m4f at Gowran latest and is interesting on her handicap bow, while course winner For Pleasure has to be respected back up in trip having disappointed over 10 furlongs last time.

Verdict

SUBJUDICE shaped with definite signs of promise over inadequate trips in maidens spread over 7 months, and with his pedigree/connections an ongoing recommendation now handicapping, he could be worth chancing. For Pleasure, Black Label and Ace Of Diamonds head up the dangers.
