39-5OR:
9/1

Fourth foal, stamina on dam's side suggests this trip will be very much a minimum for him but the likely soft ground will help. Yard have a 24% with their 3-y-o's here so one to be interested in, especially if the market speaks in his favour.

Has shown next to nothing in three starts to date, sent off big prices each time, and no realistic chance of success here.

39-5OR:
50/1

Dam was a half-sister to the useful middle distance performer Number Theory, and that suggests this trip will be on the short side in time, Yard have just a 4% strike rate here with their 3-y-o's, which suggests the winner may come from elsewhere.

Not totally disgraced when third in a small race at Navan on debut but a backwards step at Limerick last time, and now needs to bounce back. Others preferred.

39-5OR:

Last of ten on debut at Cork last week, showing no immediate promise and greenness as well. Can't be entertained as the likely winner.

7/1

Has had the five starts already, best effort coming last time out at Leopardstown when defying a 33/1 price tag to be beaten a nose. Handles the likely soft ground as well and his experience may take him into the places.

His half-sister Falafeena (also trained by Pat Flynn) was a speedy sort but there's also stamina on the dam's side, which gives hope this trip might suit. Yard tend to let them find their feet though, so bets watched unless market says otherwise.

Dam Alanza was a useful sort, won at Group 3 level at two and for whom this sort of trip was ideal. Yard going well and have a 20% strike rate with their 3-y-o's here, so looks one of the more likely ones on debut tonight.

E50,000 purchase as a foal and nicely bred but no immediate promise to be taken from her debut at Naas in March. Will know more here and in good hands, but may be one that simply needs more time.

Related to plenty of winners, including the useful sorts Battle of Saratoga and Free Winner. Trip should be fine on debut and yard do get the odd 3-y-o winner here, so worth a glance in the market if nothing else.

39-0OR:
5/1

Last of five on debut at Leopardstown last month but that doesn't tell the full story as she wasn't beaten far and looked a big threat 2f out. Will know more here and if coming on for that experience, needs taking seriously.

Betting

Forecast

Alanannda (5/6), Talk Now (5/1), Sagittarius Rising (7/1), Freiheit (8/1), Chilterns (9/1), Come At Dawn (20/1), Whatharm (40/1), Rathbride Prince (50/1), Mooborak (50/1), Robert E Lee (66/1), Flemings Hill (100/1)

Verdict

Talk Now is likely to improve past the form choice Sagittarius Rising after a promising first effort at Leopardstown but ALANNANDA makes plenty of appeal on paper and could be good enough at the first time of asking. Chilterns and Freiheit both require a market check.
  1. Alanannda
  2. Talk Now
  3. Sagittarius Rising
