Footstepsinthesand filly cost 21,000 gns as a 2yo, may want further examination of stamina in time and probably best watched on debut unless money arrives.

Already finished second in two maidens over this trip at Leopardstown and here, winner of second of those, US Navy Flag, boosted form with runner-up finish in Newmarket Group 2 on Thursday and is the one to beat on form here as a result.

Improved for step up to 7f on second outing in a good Limerick maiden last time out, drops back to 6f here but definite claims of being involved again.

Galileo filly is a sister to Rhododendron and holds Group-race entries for later in the year. Makes debut here for Ballydoyle and very much one for the shortlist.

Arakan filly makes debut for trainer without win under rules in previous 12 months, likely to have minor role to fill here with some classy opposition in the way.

Tentative efforts so far in maidens at Navan (5f, good) and Leopardstown (6f, good). One of three for trainer in this field and claims of others look much stronger.

Intense Focus filly is a half-sister to 2yo 5f-7½f winner Taisce Naisiunta. One of three from the Bolger yard in this line-up, surely faces stiff task to beat stablemate Dawn Delivers.

Arcano filly cost 44,000 gns as a yearling, yard has had three winners from just seven runners of late, so bears paying attention to, despite this having the look of a strong maiden.

Betting

Forecast

Dawn Delivers (4/7), Magical (5/1), Boragh Steps (10/1), Emerald Eye (11/1), Shekiba (14/1), Scoil Naisiunta (16/1), Beach Wedding (20/1), Sollertia (25/1), Rince Deireanach (33/1), Magsmillie (50/1), Flojo (66/1)

Verdict

DAWN DELIVERS has twice settled for second already, but the most recent of those has already proved to be an above average effort given the colt that beat her finished second in Group 2 company at Newmarket on Thursday. The Bolger filly therefore appears to be setting a decent barometer here and she can make it third time lucky. Emerald Eye ran a fine race at Limerick over a furlong longer on second start and looks next best of those with form in the book. Magical is a regally bred newcomer from Ballydoyle that will need maximum respect. She's got some lofty entries later in the season and could easily be up to winning this first time out. With her trainer in super form, Shekiba is another newcomer to note along with Boragh Steps.
  1. Dawn Delivers
  2. Magical
  3. Emerald Eye
