Verdict

TENAX clearly improved for his debut experience having finished third in a competitive maiden at Fairyhouse last time out. If he can take another step forward then the son of Slade Power will be tough to beat today. Lord Rapscallion was a bit disappointing when finishing behind the selection last time out but his previous form gives him a shout today. Backpfeifengesicht is another who brings solid form to the table and he should not be underestimated.

Verdict

Probably not a strong maiden and BACKPFEIFENGESICHT is taken to make it fifth time lucky having run well from the front over C&D under Colin Keane last time. Tenax is the danger.

Verdict

SAKURA won well on her second start at Navan last month and that performance suggests that she may be underestimated by an opening mark of 80. Darkash has only been narrowly denied on his last couple of starts and he should be hard to beat once again, while Yolo Again and Silver Service are others to consider in a competitive contest.

Verdict

Bits of DARKASH's maiden form suggest he could be ahead of his mark on his handicap debut and he gets the vote over Sakura. Rest Bay has ability and it is interesting to see a 10 lb claimer up as he starts out in handicaps.

Winner at Naas in June. 7/1, good second of 9 in handicap at Naas (5f, good) 16 days ago. Blinkers on 1st time. Can give a good account.

Verdict

AMTHAAL improved with every start in maiden company and she was far from disgraced when finishing less than four lengths behind the winner in a Listed race last time out. The switch to handicap company should help her chances today and a mark of 81 appears to be very fair. Alfredo Arcano has to be respected given his recent form, while Abstraction and Rapid Reaction are the pick of the remainder.

Verdict

AMTHAAL is going the right way, hasn't been overburdened with her opening mark, and looks the type to capitalise in the likely event of her rivals getting involved in a battle for the lead. Alfrfedo Arcano must be considered on the back of his Dundalk success and Abstraction is too well handicapped to ignore.

Verdict

CHRISTMAS took three attempts to get off the mark and did so at prohibitive odds at Roscommon last month. The son of Galileo looks the type capable of further progression and can handle the step up in class. Highland Fortune was fourth behind Van Beethoven in the Railway Stakes and can benefit from the step back up to 7f, while Chicago May won in good style on debut at Naas and warrants a go at this level.

Verdict

CHICAGO MAY is from a yard more renowned for its jumpers but is bred to make a 2-y-o and belied her starting price to make a winning start at Naas, running to a high level for a debutante, and shades the vote over Highland Fortune and Christmas.

Verdict

ROYAL ADMIRAL has shown some promise on his three outings in maiden company and is the least exposed member of the field with likely improvement to come on his handicap debut. Path Of Silver has shown good form recently and is respected on those performances, while others that merit consideration include Time Stands Still and Bouquet Garni, who have both been running consistently well of late.

Verdict

TIME STANDS STILL went close over C&D last time and might be capable of going one better if turning up in similar form. Emperor Bob reacted positively to blinkers when resuming winning ways at Killarney last time and is much respected despite an 11 lb rise, while Count of Carabass had a slow start as an excuse last time and had been in very good form prior to that.

Modest filly. Remains a maiden after 7 Flat runs. 100/1, seventh of 9 in maiden at this course (7.4f, firm) 36 days ago. Up in trip.

Verdict

JULIENNE rattled the crossbar over 7f at the Curragh last time and should go close if building on that performance over this longer trip. Madame Delavanti has place claims if building on her latest fifth at Gowran, though a bigger danger to the selection may be Bright Eyed, who is entitled to come on for her debut run at Leopardstown in June. Any money for Fozzy Stack's newcomer, Lir, would also be notable.

Verdict

BRIGHT EYED and Julienne, a couple of promising daughters of Galileo are expected to fight this out with the former, who is less exposed and caught the eye under a sympathetic ride on debut, taken to come out on top. Madame Delavanti also makes appeal having started encouragingly, while Lir makes the most appeal of some mildly interesting newcomers.

Verdict

UNIVERSAL FOCUS was touched off by a head over this trip at Dundalk last time and, also fully effective on turf, he wouldn't need to find much improvement in order to go one better off this 1lb higher mark. Galtymore had a recent spin over hurdles and makes some appeal on his preceding Killarney third off this mark over 1m3f, while Crafted Jewel is entitled to step up on her Curragh fourth last time now eased in grade.

Verdict

MIRO was a little underwhelming last time but prior to that, he'd shaped as if ready to capitalise on a reduced mark on his reappearance and, with one of the more experienced riders in the plate, he's worth chancing to build on that encouragement at the second attempt. Universal Focus and Galtymore look the principal dangers.
