Foaled January 15. €25,000 yearling, Toronado filly. Dam, 2-y-o 5f winner, sister to smart winner up to 7f Parfait.

Verdict

Those with form do not inspire a lot of confidence and that means that a chance can be taken with YOLO AGAIN. The daughter of Toronado is out of a mare who won on her debut early in her juvenile season and there is plenty of other speedy types on her page. So Perfect cost $400,000 as a yearling and she is a full-sister to a Japanese Listed winner, while Silver Service and Chicas Amigas are others to note.

Verdict

SO PERFECT is bred to be sharp and makes the most appeal before market clues. Palabres and Mater Matuta are other likely types.

Verdict

Jockey bookings suggest that SIOUX NATION is the pick of the Ballydoyle trio and he brings rock-solid juvenile form to the table, having won the Norfolk and Phoenix Stakes. He will have to prove that he has trained on but the same can be said of all of his rivals. Different League, who was purchased by these connections for 1,500,000gns in December, was one of the best two-year-old fillies in Europe last year and she was far from disgraced when chasing home Clemmie in the Cheveley Park in October. Fleet Review finished in front of the selection in the Middle Park but he is not certain to confirm that form. Speak In Colours is the pick of the remainder having won a Listed race at Doncaster in October on his final start for Marco Botti.

Verdict

Aidan O'Brien holds a strong hand and it looks significant that Ryan Moore is on board SIOUX NATION rather than stablemates Fleet Review and Different League.

Thrice-raced maiden. 10/1, fourth of 10 in maiden at this course (5f, heavy) 15 days ago, nearest finish. Makes handicap debut.

Verdict

PAINT ran well to finish second in a rated race at Dundalk on her debut for these connections last month and she could take plenty of beating back in handicap company. Golden Spell was an above-average juvenile and she is entitled to improve for her recent comeback run at Naas. Others who warrant consideration in a wide-open event are Sorelle Delle Rose, Thiswaycadeaux and Voge.

Verdict

SORELLE DELLE ROSE is low mileage for her age and probably hasn't reached her limit yet so, with a satisfactory reappearance behind her, she can resume progress to get the better of a mark of 84. Thiswaycadeaux caught the eye last time and must be respected along with Voge.

Verdict

NIGG BAY was only narrowly behind an in-from rival when finishing second at Dundalk last month and the first-time cheekpieces may bring about the required improvement to see him go one better. Ecoeye also filled the runner-up position on his seasonal return and another good run can be expected from the six-year-old. Doonard Prince, Haqeeba and Aspen Belle all have a solid each-way chance.

Verdict

NIGG BAY reacted positively to a visor when collared only late on at Dundalk last time and is taken to go one better with cheekpieces the headgear of choice this time. Doonard Prince, Haqeeba, Pillar and Ecoeye are others who arrive on the back of good recent efforts and are worthy of consideration in a very open heat.
