511-9OR:
14/1

Full-sister to bumper/2½m hurdle winner Just Before Dawn, but pedigree is essentially a fairly modest one, and others likely to be stronger on racecourse debut.

7/2

King's Theatre mare out of a winning hurdler. Bred for this discipline, and in the hands of a master of his profession, so likely to play a major role starting out.

511-9OR:
20/1

Almost sprung a shock when third of 14 to Suinda in mares maiden bumper at Clonmel in May, but not in the same form at Tramore next time, and has a bit to prove now.

13/2

Thoroughly exposed after eight starts in this sphere, finishing second twice at Clonmel. Place claims with her best form, but vulnerable to anything with a bit of scope.

511-9OR:
5/2

Beneficial mare who improved on promise of debut when 1¼L second of 8 to Best of Dubai in mares maiden event at Galway last time. Sets the standard on that effort, and one of the likelier ones on paper.

411-5OR:
5/1

Aqlaam half-sister to French 1m winner Lahqaout of a French 1m3f/1½m winner. Yard has a decent strike-rate in bumpers, and this filly makes more appeal than most on pedigree.

411-5OR:
4/1

Best effort when runner-up at Kelso last month, but hasn't been able to build on that, albeit not discredited, in two starts since. Remains vulnerable for all she should give her running.

411-5OR:
100/1

Tailed off last on racecourse debut at Kilbeggan last month, and hard to see her getting involved after that showing.

Betting

Forecast

Wait For No One (5/2), Royal Illusion (7/2), Miss Aloud (4/1), Ghurba (5/1), Vic's Little Miss (13/2), Grove Hill (14/1), Three Thirds (20/1), Wonderful Woman (100/1)

Verdict

ROYAL ILLUSION is bred to make an impact in bumpers being a daughter of King's Theatre, and she can make a winning debut for Willie Mullins at the expense of Wait For No One, who has looked a nice prospect in two starts to date. Ghurba is an interesting newcomer from the Noel Meade yard, and has a decent middle-distance pedigree. She needs a second look in the market.
