Verdict

SAN ANDREAS clearly needed his debut run when finishing fourth over 7f here earlier in the month and he should only improve for that experience. The 250,000-pound purchase is bred to be fast and this step down in trip may help his chances. Dark Endeavour has a similar profile to the selection and his first effort over C&D offered plenty of promise. Defilade, who is from the family of Brian Boru and Workforce, is a newcomer who warrants respect.

Verdict

SAN ANDREAS isn't a typical Ballydoyle star on breeding but showed plenty up to a point on his debut here 3 weeks ago and should be able to improve enough to take this maiden. Dark Endeavour and newcomer Defilade also come into the reckoning.

Verdict

CHAMROUSSE was only denied by a neck in a similar event over 7f here 19 days ago and a reproduction of that effort today would give her a big chance of success. Frosty Beach returned from a short break with a good effort at Cork recently and she is an obvious threat to the selection. Carefully and Happen are both out of outstanding mares and it is far too soon to be writing them off, while any market support for Sonaiyla would have to be noted.

Verdict

CHAMROUSSE ran another promising race when second over 7f here last time and can go one better. The Ballydoyle trio are all interesting, I Remember You perhaps the most at this stage.

Verdict

CHESTNUT EXPRESS has improved with every start to date and she got off the mark in a maiden over C&D last month. That performance suggests a mark of 80 should be workable. Silver Service has proven to be a tough and consistent juvenile who should be in the money once again, while Recon Mission and Chicago May are others who merit the utmost respect.

Verdict

RECON MISSION ran a stormer behind All The Kings Men at listed level a week ago and is probably still getting better, so this tough colt could outclass his rivals off top weight in this extremely competitive nursery. Archaelogy had a bit up his sleeve at Navan last time, so he can continue his upward curve along with fellow last-time-out winner Chestnut Express.

Twice-raced maiden. 16/1, 7¼ lengths eighth of 15 to Gustavus Weston in maiden at Fairyhouse (6f, good to soft) 27 days ago. Very hard to make a case for.

Verdict

KESTREL PRINCE's only defeat to date came when finishing third to the subsequent Group 1 winner Iridessa and another Group performer in Cardini at Killarney in July. He has to carry plenty of weight today but the son of Lethal Force can still add another victory to his record. The main threat may prove to be his stablemate Army Recruit, who only found Circus Maximus too good last time out and that form was boosted when the third and fourth fought out the finish of a maiden a Gowran Park earlier in the week. Dark Pursuit beat Army Recruit on his debut last month and is another with leading claims, while Dragon Roll should find this easier than the Group race she contested last time out.

Verdict

This is wide open, but ARMY RECRUIT lacks the penalty that the bulk of his main rivals have to carry and he's certainly marked himself down as well capable of winning a race of this nature, so he gains the tentative vote to get off the mark at the expense of his stablemate Kestrel Prince and last-time-out winner Gustavus Weston.

Verdict

Making Light could hardly have won more easily in this grade at Cork two starts ago but she struggled in a Leopardstown Group 2 latest and has to give lumps of weight to some smart-looking types, including a battalion of Aidan O'Brien runners. The Ballydoyle handler's quartet is led by Could It Be Love according to official figures, though Cork maiden winner Snowflakes looks useful and both Most Gifted and Sarrocchi merit respect. Preference, though, is for MOTEO, who caught the eye when winning at Leopardstown on debut and showed that this grade holds no fears for the progressive grey when third at Cork last time. Open to any amount of improvement after just two starts, she can strike.

Verdict

MAKING LIGHT was off her game at Leopardstown last month but is a class act at this level if anywhere near her best and is taken to bounce back and notch a third win of the campaign. Moteo showed useful form on just her second start when third in this grade at Cork 11 days ago and likely has more to offer, while Espere will also be competitive if recapturing her best form.
