Verdict

Dermot Weld holds a strong hand here with the unraced Kalamriyda and DABULENA, who is the choice of Pat Smullen, with preference for the latter on the back of his likeable second on debut at Cork and she should have more to come now. Hushing was two places further back that day and is a potential improver for Godolphin who needs consideration while Alluringly is also respected representing Ballydoyle.

Verdict

DABULENA showed plenty of ability when runner-up on debut at Cork 18 days ago, and she gets the nod to go one place better upped marginally in trip. Alluringly and debutante Afternoon Delight head up the dangers.

Verdict

VENICE BEACH disappointed at Leopardstown last time but is given another chance now stepping up to a mile and a half, and rates as the best of the Aidan O'Brien trio here. Jim Bolger and Godolphin are represented by Clongowes, who was second at Naas recently, and could have more to give while the Dermot Weld trained Haripour was fifth behind the selection in that Leopardstown contest and is another worthy of consideration.

Verdict

VENICE BEACH has twice made the frame in maidens and did best of those ridden close up on return at Leopardstown a couple of weeks ago. He promises to be suited by this longer trip and gets the nod to make it third time lucky, with Clongowes and Haripour next best.

Verdict

MOTHERLAND was a dual victor last season at similar distance and a bold bid is predicted on his reappearance for the O'Brien boys, Donnacha and Joseph. The Dermot Weld pair of Ezanak and Tandem are respected with the former, an Aga Khan colt, looking the main danger to the selection. A market check can also be afforded to Adimelo who has been campaigning over hurdles and a change of tact is tried now.

Verdict

MOTHERLAND made a mockery of his opening mark at Galway last summer and can make a winning return en route to better things. Ezanak is a clear next best.

Verdict

Timing'severything needs a market check starting life for Augustine Leahy following a 244 day break, while Leomar has been frustrating to follow in his career so far but could prove capable of landing one of these for Gordon Elliott and his powerful connections. Both arrive with risks attached and it might be wise to go for the lesser exposed THE STEWARD, who was put in some hot races on the Flat for Dermot Weld last season but could find this sphere more to his liking. Robin Des Foret is also respected for team Mullins.

Verdict

Little depth to this maiden hurdle and ROBIN DES FORET looks up to making a winning hurdles debut after landing the odds in a Kilbeggan bumper when last seen in August. Timing'severything is worth another chance starting out for a new stable, while it's still early days with Hickey's Rock.
