€80,000 Dark Angel half-brother to a winning sprinter out of an unraced half-sister to Temple Stakes winner Hot Streak. Probably needed experience when ninth of 13 on debut at the Curragh last month.

Excelebration half-brother to three winners, but unfancied when down the field on both starts to date, and likely to do better when tackling nurseries on that evidence.

War Front colt who improved on debut effort when 3¼ lengths fourth of 13 to Indigo Balance in 6f maiden at the Curragh last time, racing prominently. Should improve further, and high on the shortlist.

No Nay Never half-brother to 1¼m winner Chiavari. Unfancied 40/1 shot when just behind North Wind in minor event at Naas on debut, and entitled to improve for that experience, so merits respect.

Sepoy half-sister to useful 7f/1m performer Peak Princess, and holds an entry in 2-y-o Trophy at Redcar. No easy task against colts on debut, but market check recommended.

Betting

Forecast

National Guard (2/11), North Wind (2/1), Parkers Hill (6/1), Darkash (10/1), Facethepuckout (33/1), Hitchslap (40/1)

Verdict

NATIONAL GUARD had stable-companion North Wind behind when the pair clashed in a Curragh maiden last time, and is expected to uphold that form given both raced prominently. Parkers Hill was behind North Wind when fourth to Van Beethoven at the first time of asking, but could be open to significant improvement, so isn't dismissed from calculations.
