LATIN FIVE only found one too good on his debut at Navan last weekend and the son of Camacho could be very hard to beat with that experience now under his belt. Value Chain also hit the crossbar on his first start at Naas and that form suggests that he could be the biggest threat to the selection. Glow Worm and Daughter In Law are others with valid form claims, while My Friend Stan is the pick of the newcomers.

HIT THE SILK landed a big-field handicap at this track last time and could defy an 11lb rise to strike now dropped down to 6f. The six-year-old is expected to get a strong pace to aim at, and makes marginally greater appeal than Amanaat, who looked to relish fast ground when second at Navan in May following a break. Mokhalad continues to prove a model of consistency in these competitive sprint events on turf.

Coolmore will be desperate to get a big win into American Pharoah's brother St Patrick's Day, while Urban Beat has bridged the gap from handicap company this season and had Ardhoomey back in fourth when claiming the Woodlands Stakes. He was behind Chessman and Smash Williams in the Cork Stakes before that, though, and a chance is taken on the fitness of SPEAK IN COLOURS. Joseph O'Brien's colt was found wanting in Group 1 company last season but there is every chance he could graduate to that sort of level this campaign.
