Held on all three starts so far including twice in claiming company. Others have a more obvious chance in this contest.

Unraced daughter of Bushranger bought cheaply as a yearling. Half-sister to a three time winner but probably best watched on belated debut.

Unraced gelded son of Kodiac purchased for €6,000 at the breeze-up sales a year ago. Worth a check in the market on racecourse debut.

Unraced gelded son of Showcasing out of an unraced dam. Wears a tongue tie and market support would be interesting on racecourse debut.

Placed on all three starts for Jessica Harrington including when runner-up over 1m at Dundalk in March. Gelded since and a leading contender on debut for a new yard.

Shaped as if she'd improve for the experience when finishing runner-up over this trip at Gowran Park (soft-to-heavy) on debut earlier this month. One for the shortlist for a stable in good form at present (5/25).

Promising 7L fourth at Gowran Park (1m, soft-to-heavy) on sole start at two and put a disappointing return behind her when 3L seventh back at Gowran Park last time.

Placed over 7f at Gowran Park (soft-to-heavy) on her most recent start. Work to do if she's to reverse form with Alanannda on that running.

Betting

Forecast

Alanannda (1/1), Loving A Boom (2/1), Castletownshend (10/1), My Snowdrop (12/1), Case Stated (14/1), Talk Now (16/1), Implode (25/1), Mr Whoppit (50/1), An Cait Dubh (66/1), Joely (100/1), Cavaquinho (100/1)

Verdict

ALANANNDA can register her first victory at the second time of asking in this opening maiden. The selection caught the eye when placed on debut last time out and looks capable of seeing off Loving A Boom who is making his first start since joining a yard who have plenty of success in this sphere. Castletownshend has run well on soft ground in the past and he can claim third.
  1. Alanannda
  2. Loving A Boom
  3. Castletownshend
