Not seen out for well over a year and showed very limited promise on debut at Dundalk. Cheekpieces applied now, but looks an unlikely winner.

Well beaten in a bumper in May but showed more when midfield in a 12f maiden at Limerick last time out. This looks too hard, but she may run well without threatening.

Tailed off all three starts and sent off big prices every time. No realistic chance of success here.

Speed on the dam's side of the pedigree but showed this trip holds no terrors when an good third at Dundalk on debut last month. That form looks among the best on offer here, and he should be up to playing a part with a bit of improvement.

Has only beaten a couple of horses home in two starts so far and looks to be biting off more than he can chew here.

Bred to want a bit further than this, but showed plenty of promise when staying on into second on debut at Galway last month and will appreciate the extra two furlongs. Has to be on the shortlist for this.

Thrown in at the deep end for his debut and far from disgraced when last of four, beaten 4L, in a better contest than this at Naas. That gives some indication of the regard he's held in, and he must be taken very seriously here.

Cost $400,000 as a yearling, dirt pedigree and has clearly taken a bit of time to come to himself. Bit worrying to see tongue tie on for debut too but powerful connections mean he can't be ignored.

Tailed off on Dundalk debut and clearly little was expected as he went off 50-1. May be more of the same here.

Half-brother to a useful dirt performer in Mad Flatter and did show a bit of promise on his Dundalk debut last month, but looks one more for handicaps back there this winter.

Teofilio filly that's a sister to a winner in Belgium, but looks one more for the future and is likely to need this today. Market worth a look but others preferred at this stage.

Some dirt winners in the pedigree but only limited promise shown on her Galway debut, although not knocked about, and may do better on this quicker ground. Not totally discounted and worth a look for e/w players.

Only beat a couple home on her Cork debut in May and 66-1 price tag suggested that not a lot was expected anyway. Plenty to find here.

Beat just one home on her Dundalk debut last December, not seen since and now wears a tongue tie. Makes next to no appeal.

Last of fourteen on her Curragh debut earlier in the month and has no realistic chance of success based on that.

Pivotal colt that wasn't entirely disgraced on his Galway debut earlier in the month but would need a lot of improvement to challenge for top honours here. Best watched.

Betting

Forecast

Dabiyr (9/10), First Response (7/2), Prepare For Battle (7/1), Cloak Of Darkness (8/1), Flamma Clarus (12/1), Savitar (16/1), Shakespear'sgalley (20/1), Midnight Drummer (25/1), Lovely Is The Rose (28/1), Treasure Rock (50/1), Miracles In May (50/1), Bonnie Blue Flag (66/1), Night Drive (66/1), Alfred Elmore (100/1), Crafty Hugo (100/1), Spittal Field (100/1), Allez Secrete (100/1), She's A Novelty (150/1), Madamoiselle (150/1)

Verdict

FIRST RESPONSE is clearly thought a fair bit of to be thrown in a hot race for his debut and he ran with more than enough promise tho think that he can get off the mark now dropped in grade. Prepare For Battle represents top connections and will be popular but the tongue tie on for debut sounds a warning note. Dabiyr already looks in need of this trip and should be involved, and Cloak Of Darkness could be of interest to e/w players.
