39-5OR:
25/1

Excelebration half-brother to 5f winner Shanghai Beauty and 6f-1m winner Grand Show, out of a half-sister to smart sprinter Bahamian Bounty. Tongue tie sounds a note of caution on racecourse bow.

Dansili half-brother to outstanding middle-distance filly Enable among other winners. Top yard 10-61 in 3-y-o non-handicaps here since 2016, and this regally-bred colt needs maximum respect on debut.

Canford Cliffs half-brother to 7f/1m La Reine de Pearls out of a winner around 1m. Yard not associated with winners in this sphere, and easily passed over.

Failed to build on promising debut at Dundalk on the AW in December when slowly away on seasonal debut at Leopardstown in May, and fared no better when last of 7 at Gowran recently.

Only 1¾L behind Dewhurst runner-up Mendelssohn on debut at the Curragh a year ago, but he has failed to progress from that promising start, and others again more compelling.

Matched pick of previous efforts when head second of 17 to Diamond Hill in a 1½m maiden at Galway (heavy) last week, and respected on that effort, for all this sharper test isn't certain to play to his strengths.

Elnadim half-brother to three winners. Showed a modicum of ability when down the field at Galway on last week's debut, but likely to need more time.

Better effort in maidens when fifth of 9 to Falcon Eight over 1½m at the Curragh last time. May yet do better, but needs this run for a handicap mark, so some caution advised.

Casamento half-sister to useful 6f-7f winner Miracle of Medinah, but showed very little on recent debut at Gowran, and make no realistic appeal on that basis.

Homebred filly who is related to winners, but hasn't shown a great deal in two starts at Gowran in recent weeks.

Betting

Forecast

Centroid (4/5), National Wealth (2/1), Leaderboard (10/1), Theotonius (10/1), Fearaun (20/1), Cause To Fly (25/1), Styler Label (33/1), Ollie Bang (50/1), Doogan's Warren (50/1), Smart Lass (100/1)

Verdict

National Wealth sets the standard based on his second over further in the mud at Galway, but he may be vulnerable given this sharper test, and newcomer CENTROID ticks all the right boxes, being a half-brother to Oaks, King George and Arc winner Enable. Theotonius needs this for a handicap mark, but remains unexposed, and ought to build on a promising return at the Curragh.
