Roderic O'connor colt. Dam was a maiden. Picked up for relatively small money and perhaps best watched on first outing.

Most Improved gelding. Dam, winner up to 1m2f, also won over hurdles. Plenty stamina in pedigree, second runner for trainer in this field.

Moderate start to racing career in 5f Naas maiden last time, up in trip this evening but chances are he's going to struggle at the business end.

Scat Daddy colt, shaped with plenty of promise when third in a 6f AW maiden at Dundalk on debut recently, likely to come on for that run and rates a player here.

Scat Daddy colt is a brother to smart two-year-old 5f/6f winner Sioux Nation. Makes debut for Ballydoyle, who run three here, and entitled to have his say.

Requinto colt who dam was maiden (stayed 7f). Looks to be in with some big fish on debut and watching brief the safest play.

War Front colt with a mixture of stamina and speed on his page, third of the Ballydoyle contingent and interesting to see how betting judges them. May want further in time.

A €65,000 yearling, the No Nay Never colt has the pedigree that suggests he'll want a bit further in time. Not overlooked and Billy Lee a positive booking.

Filly ran out of puff over 5f at Naas on debut 54 days ago, goes up in trip here and there may be more to come. Needs to be decent to hold some of these.

Betting

Forecast

Empire State (6/5), Invasion Day (15/8), Isle Of Innisfree (12/1), National Guard (16/1), Cuban Surfer (20/1), Dingle Bay (20/1), No Needs Never (25/1), Biltmore (25/1), Merida (33/1), Backpfeifengesicht (50/1), Aaron Boy (66/1), An Bhfuil Tu Reidh (100/1), Naquinto (100/1)

Verdict

EMPIRE STATE finished just behind Invasion Day in their respective debuts at Dundalk recently, there wasn't much between them and, given his trainer, the selection is likely to show a significant chunk of improvement for that outing. The Scat Daddy colt can reverse the form. Ballydoyle newcomers Isle Of Innisfree and National Guard are noted, as are No Needs Never and Cuban Surfer.
