Verdict

Pride Of Pimlico was an impressive winner of the first juvenile race of the year at Naas last month and he has to be given the utmost respect this afternoon. That said, he may struggle to give 5lb to SERGEI PROKOFIEV, who really caught the eye when going down narrowly on his debut at Dundalk. The son of Scat Daddy only found an experienced rival a short-head too good on that occasion and he certainly was not given a hard time by his jockey on that occasion. If he improves as much for his debut as most do from that yard then he will be hard to beat this afternoon. Sunday Spark is another who displayed promise on his first run, while Tallien has to be given a market inspection.

Verdict

SERGEI PROKOFIEV is hard to oppose assuming any improvement for his debut second, but will be priced accordingly. Pride Of Pimlico looks his biggest danger and ought to be the one for the forecast though Sunday Spark will also improve for his debut and won't be too far away at the line.

Verdict

Shapes has some very good form to her name from last year, hence her official rating of 92, but the daughter of So You Think was a disappointing short-priced favourite on her seasonal return. The heavy ground may have been against her on that occasion but the preference is still for LUZUM. Dermot Weld's gelding only went down narrowly at Cork last time out and the winner of that race was not disgraced in a Group 3 subsequently. Others to note are Hawaam, Maymine and Soffia.

Verdict

LUZUM intrigues dropping back in trip and if he has the early speed to get competitive he will take a lot of stopping now. Shapes pulled too hard over further but can be let go over this trip and won't be far away, while Hawaam can follow them home in third.

Winner at Dundalk in December. 7/1, seventh of 8 in handicap at this course (8f, heavy) 16 days ago. Back down in trip but very hard to make a case for at present.

Verdict

G FORCE romped to an easy victory over 6f at Naas 10 days ago and even after a 6lb rise he could be fairly treated on his best form, given his back class. Master Speaker has been holding his form well on the all-weather and is expected to build on his latest effort over 7f now reverting to a more suitable trip. The pick of the remainder may be recent 5f course winner Sors, who should give it his best shot on the front end once again.

Verdict

G FORCE was so impressive last time out that it is difficuult to look past the seven -year-old, even with top-weight to carry today. Sors looks his biggest rival on recent form and won't be far away at the finish, while Ice Cold In Alex intrigues on his better form, and could well get involved as well.

Useful filly, 6½ lengths seventh of 11 to Caravaggio in Flying Five Stakes at the Curragh (5f, soft, 14/1). Off 7 months and has something to find on form.

Verdict

DOWNFORCE looked on good terms with himself when winning a Listed contest from the front here on his penultimate outing and was far from disgraced when upped to 7f in Group 3 company at Naas latest. A big run likely beckons now he drops back in trip. Washington Dc is entitled to come on for his comeback spin in Dubai at the World Cup meeting and is considered the main danger ahead of Gymkhana, who attracted support in a Naas handicap on his seasonal return.

Verdict

WASHINGTON DC is impossible to oppose dropped in class and ought to record a morale boosting victory if he can keep tabs on the leaders early in the race. If he does get detached then Son Of Rest looks likeliest to pounce, leaving Downforce for the third and final placing.

One win from 3 runs last year, 3/1, fourth of 11 in nursery at Leopardstown (7f, soft). Off 177 days and must improve to get competitive, Andrew Slattery's claim can only help.

Verdict

BAND OF OUTLAWS was tapped for toe when third behind G Force (who is engaged earlier on today's card) at Naas earlier in the month but this stiffer test could be just what Joseph O'Brien's charge needs given he's a half-brother to six-time 1m scorer Berrahri. Poetic Light is another for whom a return to 1m appears ideal, while there may be more to come from Platinum Warrior now he moves outside of maidens. Grade dropper Lethal Steps could also take a hand.

Verdict

SEBASTIANO RICCI has been crying out for a step up in trip and off a pound lower than last time, he has a decent chance for his in-form stable. Platinum Warrior caught the eye when winning on his last outing and is a serious rival if he handles this ground, while Poetic Light is another for the minor places.

Thirteen runs since last win in 2016. 3/1, respectable fourth of 14 in handicap at Dundalk (8f). Off 123 days and would have a chance if getting in to the final line-up.

Verdict

No Way Jack knuckled down well to score by a neck over 1m at Leopardstown last time and should be thereabouts once more, while Cashless, who was third in the same contest, also makes obvious appeal. Recent Southwell scorer Romantic will have his supporters too, though preferred ahead of all is BEAU SATCHEL, who has dropped back down to his last winning (all-weather) mark and could step up on his latest one-length fourth at Dundalk now sporting first-time blinkers.

Verdict

CASHLESS is a tentative selection in a highly competitive event and will need to be at his very best to come home in front. No Way Jack is in good form and can make a bold attempt in second, while Beau Satchel could surprise in first time blinkers here.
