66/1

Three starts in and little to show for her efforts up to press. Best watched on debut for a new stable.

Deep Impact colt that has already had a few chances and not quite delivered the sucker punch. Has obvious ability and will be suited by the drop in trip. has to be shortlisted in this company.

Dam was unplaced during her career between 5f and 9f in France but is a half-sister to a Listed race winner over 6f. Yard quiet just now so probably safe to just take notes.

Fourth behind Derby fourth Saxon Warrior on debut at The Curragh reads well in the context of this race. Entitled to have come on for the experience, this 100,000 gns purchase (as a yearling) could be a different proposition here. Hard to overlook.

Cost just €1,400 and lacks the glamour of some of the rest on pedigree. Would be a surprise winner.

Cost 70,000 gns and is a half-brother to extended mile winner Sacred Thoughts. Dam also possessed plenty of ability, so has to go into the notebook as one for the future. Yard in good form with its youngsters too.

2/1

Cost €160,000 and is a half-sister to six winners at a variety of trips. Ran well in defeat in the 1,000 Guineas Trail at Leopardstown in April but soon beaten in a Group 3 last time. Sets a good standard and should be in the mix again.

Not much progress from two starts so far and already has improvement to find. Others readily preferred.

Didn't get competitive on debut at Gowran Park and lacks the appeal held by others on breeding. Hard to visage her being good enough to cause a shock just now.

Second on debut over 7f at Gowran Park last week was a sound introduction and this daughter of Dansili created the impression a mile won't be a problem. Needs to take a step forward but appeals on pedigree and is worth considering if supported.

A half-sister to some fair handicappers but hard to see this filly being good enough to get one over on her more illustriously bred rivals. Best watched.

Betting

Forecast

Iiex Excelsa (2/1), Fridtjof Nansen (5/2), Conclusion (3/1), Raeseeya (8/1), Hasimiyya (8/1), Swanson (12/1), Kashika (25/1), Mountjubilee (33/1), Theoneyouare (50/1), Crafty Hugo (50/1), Dreams Of Winter (66/1), Perry Square (80/1)

Verdict

Several interesting contenders with the likes of Iiex Excelsa and Raeseeya likely to be popular in the betting - the former especially as she sets a good standard just now. However, there could be better value in siding with FRIDJOT NANSEN, who shaped up nicely behind Derby fourth Saxon Warrior on debut last summer and has been given plenty of time to come to hand. Swanson is another to monitor closely in the betting market.
  1. Fridtjof Nansen
  2. Raeseeya
  3. Iiex Excelsa
