Sole Power half-brother to 1½m winner Rex Whistler and 5f winner Nuala Tagula, out of a mare who won a 7f maiden here for same connections.

Bated Breath half-brother to smart sprinter Poyle Vinnie, and although a very cheap purchase, entries in the Futurity and National Stakes suggest he's showing connections plenty at home. Market useful.

Full-brother to useful 5f/6f winner Leo Minor out of a listed winner, herself closely related to Derby winner Pour Moi. One of three for leading yard here, and market will help establish the pecking order.

War Front colt out of a dual winner who was placed at Group 3 level. Bred to be decent, and betting will be useful given he's one of a trio of runners from leading stable.

Excelebration colt out of an unraced half-sister to 1¼m Group 1 winner Ransom O'War. Yard can ready one and record of 11-72 with two-year-olds here since 2013 means he merits respect, although Burmese Waltz appears yard's first-string.

Well held in two starts to date, and makes no obvious appeal at this level of competition.

February foal by Lope De Vega out of a Invincible Spirit mare. Showed ability when second to Christmas in a Roscommon maiden last month, and likely to improve on that. This looks a deeper contest, though.

One of three for yard here, and best effort to date when neck second of 5 to Parkers Hill in C&D maiden last time; oubattled there having been sent off at very skinny odds, though, and blinkers reached for now.

Showcasing filly who cost £45,000 as a yearling. Clear of the rest when a promising third of 15 to Chocolate Music in maiden at the Curragh last month, and sure to go close if building on that as expected.

Big Bad Bob half-sister to two juvenile 5f winners. Considerate introduction when seventh of 10 to North Wind in maiden at Naas last month, and likely to leave that form behind in due course.

Resold as a yearling for €180,000, and made a promising debut when fourth of 15 to Chocolate Music in maiden at the Curragh last month, just behind Burmese Waltz. Sure to improve, and shortlisted.

Betting

Forecast

Burmese Waltz (5/4), Could Be King (9/2), Woody Creek (7/1), National Guard (7/1), Ferretti (12/1), Mofakker (14/1), Fairy Fort (16/1), Chutzpah (16/1), Inverleigh (20/1), Wild Bob Cat (33/1), Chagall (50/1), Jewel Love (50/1), Manard (100/1)

Verdict

National Guard sets the standard, and looks the pick of a trio of War Fronts trained by Aidan O'Brien here, but he did get beaten at very short odds here last time, and a chance is taken on BURMESE WALTZ to beat him after a very promising third on her debut at the Curragh. She had Woody Creek back in fourth that day, but Fozzy Stack's filly very much caught there eye, and should also get involved with the benefit of that outing.
