Verdict

Invincible Karma was not disgraced in Group Two company at the Curragh last time so has to be considered, but the fact Colm O'Donoghue has got off him to ride newcomer Fancy Feat could suggest that the Rajj filly is showing plenty at home. The Corporal was last of five on his debut but Aidan O'Brien usually gets his horses to improve markedly second time out, though preference is for VOCATUS. Jim Bolger's colt showed promise on debut and wasn't beaten all that far at Navan second time out. He disappointed over a mile last time, but this shorter trip could prove ideal.

Verdict

INVINCIBLE KARMA dips back into calmer waters having contested the Railway Stakes last time and should open his account. Jeyyaad and Fancy Feat are among a number of interesting newcomers.

Verdict

This could be between the two previous winners in the field, with DADOOZDART preferred ahead of Kestrel Prince. Noel Meade's gelding was impressive on his debut, where subsequent Richmond Stakes winner Land Force was back in third, and though the spell on the sidelines since is a concern, he could have enough class to land the spoils. Kestrel Prince struck over C&D on debut but couldn't back that up at Killarney last time, while Engles Rock has been knocking on the door of late and should not be underestimated.

Verdict

ENGLES ROCK appeared to take a massive step forward when second at Galway and could be hard to beat on these terms if building on that. Dadoozdart, back from an absence after his debut win, and Kestrel Prince, are both open to improvement and head up the dangers.

Verdict

King Of Leinster produced a couple of runner-up finishes on his first two starts before bombing out the last twice, but he could improve for a gelding operation. Shifted Strategy has plenty of experience and is another with claims on the pick of his form, but it might be worth taking a chance on newcomer SAVITAR here. Jim Bolger's colt is related to a trio of speedy winners and the son of Shamardal could make up for lost time on his belated debut.

Verdict

This maiden may be destined for a newcomer and IMPLEMENT is as appealing as any on paper. Ultimately he's bred for middle-distances but his brother made a winning 2-y-o debut over this trip, and it will look significant if the market speaks in his favour. Savitar and Paul Patterson, the former especially, are other likely-looking types, while Shifted Strategy is the pick of those with experience.

Verdict

SIMIYNA made a favourable impression on her debut at Leopardstown, getting within a length of success, and though things haven't gone as well over longer trips since, the return to this distance and switch to handicaps off a fair mark could be just what the doctor ordered. She could be given most to think about by Dandys Gold, who followed up a Cork win with a fair fourth at the same venue last time, while Landline won a pair of Naas sprints earlier in the season and may enjoy this longer distance.

Verdict

HANDSOME MAVERICK returned to form with blinkers applied when third in a big-field 6f handicap at the Curragh a fortnight ago. He's only been nudged up 1 lb for that and makes plenty of appeal back at this trip. Landline wasn't disgraced in the same handicap, albeit finishing only tenth, and may prove most troublesome. Simiyna is one to note in the betting now pitched into a handicap.

Verdict

Massa Lubrense signed off last season with a solid win on the all-weather at Dundalk and has claims if returning in the same mood, but the form of TOUGH SPIRIT's recent Curragh success has been franked by the runner-up winning since and Johnny Murtagh's filly has a fitness edge to boot. Scream was eased once his chance was gone at Galway but has claims on the form of his Bellewstown victory last month.

Verdict

TOUGH SPIRIT should have more to offer on the back of her Curragh maiden success and could be the way to go tackling largely much more exposed opposition. Aubineau was a shade disappointing last time but had been shaping up nicely prior to that and could bounce back, while All The Mollies could have a part to play if primed for her reappearance.
