29-5OR:
9/4

Helmet half-brother to 7f winner Lady Sparkler and 2-y-o 1m winner Capeslew. Price rose to €75,000 earlier this year, and both yard's successes with two-year-olds this year have come with debutants. Holds a Gimcrack entry.

Dragon Pulse half-brother to smart 6f-1m winner Eddie Jock among others, but sales price dropped to just €10,000 when resold earlier in the year, and yard just 1-16 with juveniles this year.

Bred for speed, being by Slade Power out of a 5f winner, but yard not know for success with juveniles (0-36 since 2013), and best watched on debut.

Camacho filly who cost £42,000 as a yearling. Well beaten on 6f debut here, for all that was a stiff introduction, and tongue tied now. Likely to need more time.

Homebred sister to 1m winner Cresendo. Three of yard's four 2-y-o winners this year have come here, so worth a second look, for all a stiffer test will suit in time.

Well bred along sprinting lines, and cost £120,000 as a yearling, so perhaps unwise to judge her on a modest debut effort here, when she did at least show plenty of early dash.

By Burwaaz out of a 5f winner, and showed speed amidst greenness when sixth of 14 to Fulminate in 6f maiden at Fairyhouselast month. Will improve, and not ruled out.

7/1

Dandy Man half-sister to Norfolk Stakes winner Prince of Lir and 2-y-o 5f winner Kalagia, out of a useful 5f/6f juvenile winner. Very much takes the eye on pedigree, and likely to play a big part if ready to go.

12/1

Zebedee filly out of an unraced mare, and half-sister to 1m½f winner Marmalade N Toast. Others more appealing on pedigree, but yard had a 2-y-o winner at Leopardstown recently, and not underestimated.

Charm Spirit filly who travelled well when 2¼ lengths third of 8 to Fantasy in maiden at Navan last month, and looks sure to do better. Leading claims on form.

Betting

Forecast

Carbon Fibre (9/4), Rockview Spirit (4/1), Chestnut Express (6/1), Nitro Boost (7/1), Mid Winster (8/1), Cuileann (10/1), Reeking Havoc (12/1), Espirit D'Escalier (20/1), Duhallow Noelie (25/1), Berry Girl (50/1)

Verdict

Rockview Spirit is the form pick and looks likely to go close, but marginal preference is for newcomer CARBON FIBRE, who holds a Gimcrack entry and hails from a yard which can ready one first time. Nitro Boost is another debutant who ticks plenty of boxes on paper, and is also shortlisted.
  1. Carbon Fibre
  2. Rockview Spirit
  3. Nitro Boost
