Declaration Of War colt, cost $62,000 as a yearling. Dam a winning sprinter and half-sister to another winner. Lacked the pace to get competitive on debut, but better expected up in trip and with that experience in the bank.

Fairyhouse winne despite saddle slipping and being the least fancied of the stable pair. The time was good and he would be expected to confirm placings with Joza given that was his first run.

Behind Heavenly Rainbow at Fairyhouse and has scored over 7f since. To reverse the placings he needs to have improved more for the switch to this trip than that rival

Well held when 100/1 here on debut. Went off a lot shorter at Roscommon last week when far too keen and he looks a long shot to have improved significantly since.

Intikhab colt is a half-brother to smart 1m winner Mittersill and boast a nice mixture of speed and stamina in pedigree. Stepped up on his course debut when third at Roscommon in a messy race and he could take advantage of his allowance.

€15,000 yearling filly by Helmet out of a Red Ransom mare and half-sister to four winners including Paleo. Eyecatching debut here behind Heavenly Rainbow having endured trouble. Promised better when upped to this trip and now 7lb better off.

Betting

Forecast

Alfons Walde (5/2), Heavenly Rainbow (5/2), Highland Fortune (11/4), Hyde Park Corner (13/2), Joza (8/1), Hidden Spark (33/1), Man Of The Sea (40/1)

Verdict

Few of these can be entirely discounted and although Heavenly Rainbow should confirm recent placings with Joza, he may find Hyde Park Corner a bigger threat. Thomas Cooper's juvenile was noted making ground under a considerate ride before finding trouble. She meets the winner on 7lb better terms for 3½L and could turn out to be a rare juvenile winner for the yard. Highland Fortune should improve for the step up in trip but has to concede weight all round and ALFONS WALDE makes more appeal. Jessica Harrington's colt went close in a slowly run Roscommon race after being denied a clear run and Shane Foley has a profitable record on the yard's juveniles.
