59-10OR:
16/1

Winner of one of his four low-grade hurdle starts in France. Possibly best to advise a watching brief on Irish debut here.

Late developing gelding by Finsceal Fior out of a Leroidesanimaux related to many US winners on the dirt and Dubai World Cup winner Animal Kingdom. Last of seven on debut at Down Royal and best avoided here in first-time tongue-tie.

Tapit gelding, dam was a 6f winner in United States. Well held in a Gowran Park maiden last month but plenty to like about his debut here in May when beaten 2½L behind Georgie Hyphen. First-time tongue-tie may well assist.

Colt by Sea The Stars out of a Medaglia d'Oro mare. Cost $250,000 as a yearling and is a half-sister to Group 1 Prix Ganay winner Cloth Of Stars. Tongue-tie on debut has to be a concern but worth noting in the betting.

Cost 70,000 gns and is a half-brother to extended mile winner Sacred Thoughts. Disappointing ninth of 11 beaten 23L on debut when possibly losing the race at the start. Looks opposable.

By Treasure Beach out of a Honor Grades mare. Cost $35,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to five winners including US victor Mad Flutter. Best watched on debut and looks a future prospect.

Well held and down the field in a couple of disappointing career starts to date. Hard to see him making any significant impact.

Definite promise in four starts this season and finished third of 14 here over 7f in September. Plenty of room for improvement here.

Betting

Forecast

Wishing Star (8/11), Stella D'oro (9/4), Frankincense (6/1), Swanson (9/1), Litecoin (16/1), Treasure Rock (16/1), Shakadame (16/1), Ballycaines (20/1), She's A Novelty (25/1), Utalkintomeboy (33/1)

Verdict

With a number of newcomers and a couple with experience making limited appeal it may be left to the Fozzy Stack-trained WISHING STAR to battle it out for the honours with the Galileo colt Frankincense who has looked anything but straight forward in two career starts to date, though first-time tongue-tie may assist here. $250,000 as a yearling, Stella D'Oro is a half-sister to Group 1 Prix Ganay winner Cloth Of Stars and is worth a market check prior to off time.
