Gelded son of Camelot bought for €110,000 at the sales as a yearling. Disappointed on two career starts to date. First time blinkers need to bring about significant improvement here.

Son of Ask out of a modest 2m hurdle winner. 11th of 17 beaten 23L on belated Flat debut at Gowran Park earlier this month. Others look open to more improvement.

Well held in a couple of dismal efforts towards the end of last season finishing down the field on each occasion. Makes little appeal lining up in this company.

Mastercraftsman colt that cost 32,000 gns as a foal and rose to 50,000 gns as a yearling. Has disappointed connections in a couple of career starts to date. Has a bit to prove at present.

Frozen Power gelding out of a Revoque mare. Three race mare on the AW at Dundalk. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here on turf debut.

Gelding by Compton Place out of a Rock Of Gibraltar mare. Closely related to smart 1m winner Captain Cat out of winning close relative of Irish 2000 Guineas winner Turtle Island. Looks a long term prospect.

Gelded son of Declaration Of War out of a Montjeu mare. Plenty to take out of his two runs last season, hitting the frame in big runner fields. Rates a very interesting contender in this contest.

Fast Company filly has produced a couple of disappointing starts to date including when finishing last of eight on seasonal debut last month. First time blinkers doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here.

Filly by Big Bad Bob out of a Mujadil mare. Cost €1,000 as a yearling and needs to improve dramatically on her last of eight beaten 33L on debut at Dundalk in February.

Casamento filly, cost 15,000 gns as a foal and 5,000 gns as a yearling. Eighth of 17 beaten 17L behind Johnny Delta on belated Flat debut at Gowran Park earlier this month. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.

Betting

Forecast

War Diary (4/7), Castle Chase (5/1), Silvretta Schwarz (8/1), Chef Afef (10/1), Papal Count (20/1), Cosmic Boy (20/1), Khafaaq (25/1), Algo Rhythm (25/1), Miss Cassy (33/1), Hit The Rocks (50/1), Make A Story (100/1), Pointsevenk (100/1), The Tubinator (100/1)

Verdict

The potentially exciting WAR DIARY looked open to plenty of improvement following a couple of promising starts towards the end of last season and the four-year-old can get off the mark on seasonal debut here. The 72-rated Silvretta Schwarz can give the selection the most to think about, while Castle Chase looks the best of the rest.
