59-12OR: 108D
9/2

Dual hurdle winner has a fine strike rate on the level with six wins in 14 starts. Impressive 1m winner in a Listed race on heavy ground at Leopardstown in April. May have needed most recent flat run but respected here and the more rain the better.

8/1

1m Group Three winner last season but not got close to that level this term. Struggled first two starts when highly tried at Group One level but latest start when he tailed in last of six at the Curragh was disappointing in a Listed race.

3/1

Dual Group Three winner including first start of this campaign at Naas (soft to heavy). Ran well enough again next time before latest third of six at Group Two level. No doubt she has the ability to win this but will be hoping for some rain.

69-9OR: 100D
8/1

Winner of three of 31 starts and thus far unsuccessful at Stakes level although he has placed three times in Listed races. Won first time out this year but a shade disappointing in two races since. More needed here.

Dual Naas handicap winner last term put in arguably his best ever performance latest when only beaten 1½L in a Leopardstown Group Three. Appears to still be improving and surely a big player at Listed level.

4/1

Yet to win a Stakes race but placed three times in such contests this term and didn't go down without a fight in any of them. Possibly prefers soft ground but seems to act on quicker surfaces so not as reliant on rain as some.

12/1

Naas maiden winner on debut where she was owner's second string and 20/1. Fair third of four latest at the same track behind Irish 2000 Guineas fourth. This not as warm but would need to step up on all known form.

Betting

Forecast

Making Light (3/1), Pincheck (4/1), Panstarr (4/1), On The Go Again (9/2), Alexios Komnenos (8/1), Marshall Jennings (8/1), Kerineya (12/1)

Verdict

Several of these will be hoping that the forecast rain is substantial enough to significantly soften conditions. Dual Group Three winner MAKING LIGHT has made the frame in eight of her nine stakes races winning three and her form looks rock solid here. In a relatively open contest improving Pincheck is certainly a danger after an excellent effort last time out. On The Go Again must give weight to all of these which leaves him a little vulnerable but overall his form over 1m is very sound.
