Down Royal maiden winner has since been well held in Listed Tipperary contest over this trip (good to firm) early last month. Has plenty to find in order to land this.

Zebedee filly defied poor luck in running to make winning start over this trip at Naas 25 days ago, should improve for that experience and may outrun her price in this field.

Twice run well in 6f maidens at this track, dropped in distance and upped in class now, will have to take a sizeable step forward to get off the mark here.

Twice a winner on Dundalk's AW early this year, not disgraced amidst white heat of Royal Ascot's Queen Mary and duly landed Listed Tipperary contest subsequently. Progressive and respected now.

Handicap winner at Tipperary over this trip (yielding) off a mark of 91 latest, Ger Lyons team are flying lately and merits a shot at a prize of this stature now.

Forecast

Declarationofpeace (11/8), Goodthingstaketime (9/4), Treasuring (3/1), Emadee (4/1), Sirici (9/2), True Blue Moon (6/1), Wolfofbaggotstreet (10/1), Raramauri (11/1)

Verdict

Declarationofpeace is the starting point, and looks likely to go off a short price. He's clearly well regarded at Ballydoyle and looked impressive when thumping Treasuring on the AW in May. Something was clearly a miss at Royal Ascot, but he was again well held over 6f in the Phoenix Stakes since. He drops in class here and the blinkers might sharpen him up, but taking a short price looks risky enough. The aforementioned Treasuring has come forward since that setback and should be competitive while True Blue Moon is set to improve again. There's no telling how good Emadee may be but she overcame a troubled run to score on debut but SIRICI has been a consistent performer this season and having won a Listed Tipperary race last time, fully merits a tilt at this prize with the potential for better to come.
