Once-raced maiden. 3½ lengths eighth of 15 to Heavenly Rainbow in maiden (8/1) at Fairyhouse (6f, good to firm) on debut 21 days ago, not knocked about.

Verdict

HEAVENLY RAINBOW battled on well to score by a head over 6f on debut at Fairyhouse and he is entitled to come on for the run, and also improve for this additional furlong. Alfons Walde took a forward step when third at Roscommon over a similar distance last time and has place possibilities, likewise Joza, who benefitted from the step up to 7f when opening his account at Limerick.

Verdict

ALFONS WALDE shaped well when a never-nearer third at Roscommon recently and might be capable of getting off the mark at the third time of asking. Previous winners Heavenly Rainbow and Joza could be the pair to give Jessica Harrington's charge most to do.

Verdict

CALIFORNIA DADDY has landed the silver medal on both outings to date over 6f and 7f but on each occasion he's left the impression an even stiffer test, such as the mile he tackles today, may be more suitable. Vocatus has demonstrated ability in two sprint outings and could play a minor role if his stamina holds out, though the main danger may be Ballydoyle newcomer Sovereign, who merits a close inspection in the betting market.

Verdict

CALIFORNIA DADDY built on his promising debut effort when runner-up in a maiden at this course last month and looks the type to progress further, particularly over this longer trip. He can open his account. Vocatus should also benefit from this step up in distance and has to enter calculations, whilst Sovereign and Masaff look newcomers to note.

Verdict

Frankel colt SPANISH POINT finished last of 11 in the Irish 2,000 Guineas on his reappearance but now eased back into maiden company, Aidan O'Brien's charge rates the one to beat. Rated 84 on official figures, he finished an outpaced second in two 7f maidens last term, hinting that he may well come into his own over a mile this year. Hasimiyya should be all the wiser for the experience gained on debut and is nominated as the main danger, ahead of Merited and Rockabill.

Verdict

SPANISH POINT ran no sort of race on his return but that was in the Irish 2000 Guineas and sets the standard on the pick of his 2-y-o form. Dawn Trouper, Rockabill and Merited have all shown above-average ability and need considering, too.

Lightly-raced maiden. Good seventh of 15 in handicap (16/1) at this course (7.1f, good to firm) 14 days ago, having to pick way through. Stable having good spell. Uphill task.

Verdict

SO ENJOY kept on at the one pace in the finish when fourth over 7f here earlier in the month and she is a potential improver now granted this step up in trip. Hey Pretty attracted support when fourth over a similar distance at Cork last time and is unlikely to be far away at the line. The pick of the remainder may be Dancing Lady if she can leave behind her maiden form off what appears a workable mark on her handicap bow.

Verdict

CHAPARRAL DREAM is already compiling something of a patchy record, but his second at Dundalk in April proves he's capable from this sort of mark if on a 'going' day, and he earns a speculative vote. Hey Pretty and Rince Deireanach are a couple of others to consider.

Winner at Ayr in May. 11/2, creditable fourth of 9 in handicap at the Curragh (10f, good to firm) 12 days ago.

Verdict

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN had long been threatening to win prior to scoring at Limerick five days ago and it is no surprise to see Aidan O'Brien turn him out quickly under a penalty. He is dropping back slightly in trip but looks so attractively treated on his juvenile form, even now, it would be a surprise to see him denied a double. Naas second Tony The Gent can fight it out with the reliable John Honeyman for the silver medal.

Verdict

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN left his previous efforts this term well behind when successful at Limerick last week and a reproduction of that might be good enough to see him defy a 6 lb penalty here. Last month's Naas runner-up Tony The Gent could perhaps be the one to give him most to do.

Posted career best when second of 15 in handicap at Fairyhouse (6f, good to firm) 6 days ago. Can race off same mark here and is a big player.

Verdict

ELEGANT DRAMA appeared to benefit from the application of first-time cheekpieces (worn again) when winning her maiden at Fairyhouse three weeks ago and that form looks solid with the runner-up winning since. Making her handicap debut off a mark of 82, she is fancied to get the better of first-time blinkered War Hero, who narrowly missed out at Gowran last time, and Fairyhouse second It's All A Joke.

Verdict

IT'S ALL A JOKE found some improvement when runner-up in a Fairyhouse handicap last week and holds strong claims off the same mark here. Stable companion Elegant Drama look the principal danger.

Verdict

CIRCLING MOON has impressively notched up a Gowran/course (1m7f) double and, with Sean Davis taking off a valuable 7lb, he will be well fancied to complete the hat-trick. Temasek Star clearly likes this place, having won over 1m7f last July and struck the crossbar in a 1m5f handicap most recently. He warrants respect along with handicap debutant Lucky Icon, who won impressively over hurdles when last sighted.

Verdict

LUCKY ICON has offered little in a trio of maidens in this sphere but looked every inch an improved performer when scoring in good style over hurdles at Ballinrobe. He's potentially well treated back in this sphere and gets the nod. This big step up in trip should suit Bronagh's Belle and she is feared most ahead of the hat-trick seeking Circling Moon and another likely improver in Fiannaiocht.
