Verdict

MODEM had been in good form of late in Ireland having won a beginners chase when last seen but has very solid claims on his US debut with first-time Lasix to eke out improvement. Portrade and Mr. Hot Stuff look the most likely threats on paper.

Verdict

PAPA SHOT (second) accounted for Gypsum Johnny (third) when the pair bumped into a smart type last time out and this looks a nice opening for the former. Weekend Hideaway and the hat-trick-chasing Celtic Chaos look best of the remainder.

Verdict

TRUE LOVE IS YARE looks to be first pick from the Chad Brown-trained duo based on jockey bookings and won well last time out and handed a true test at Belmont. Fahan Mura and Cashless Society are others to consider.
