Filly by Elzaam out of a Spectrum mare. Trailed home last of 23 in Naas maiden (6f, good to yielding; 100-1) on debut. Yard's runners tend to improve for a run but still asking plenty.

Dream Ahead filly, cost €9,000 as a yearling. Dam won over further and was a half-sister to a 5f Group 3 winner. Midfield in two maidens over 6f at Naas last month, needs more to be in the shake-up down to the minimum distance.

A €28,000 yearling, Mastercraftsman colt. He's a half-brother to several winners, including two-year-old 5f winner Athas An Bhean. Wears tongue strap on debut, entitled to be suited by this test.

Bungle Inthejungle gelding, cost 4,500 gns as a yearling and €36,000 as a Breeze-up purchase. Half-brother to winning sprinters, dam placed over sprint trips. Too keen on debut at Naas (6f, good to yielding; 25-1) and finished out the back.

Backed on debut when finishing fourth in a Curragh 6f contest in August, found wanting in Listed company next time and hasn't really happened in two 5f maidens this term at Navan (good) Dundalk (AW). More required.

€55,000 yearling by Zoffany out of a Pivotal mare. Yet to win but keeps hitting the frame (placed 7-10 starts), including when ½L second at Leopardstown (6f, good to yielding; 5-2f) in maiden last week. Will run his race again.

Relatively inexpensive Sepoy colt. Brother to 6f winner Samarmadi and half-brother to three winners, with mixture of stamina and speed. Others preferred.

A €20,000 Equiano colt. Half-brother to multiple winners. Improved to put up a huge run at 66/1 to finish second of 22 over C&D (good to yielding) in March, but failed to match that next time at Naas over 6f. Needs to show consistency.

A €37,000 foal, this Acclamation filly went on to fetch €105,000 as a yearling. Closely related to useful 1m winner Wahash and half-sister to 1m1f winner Leigh's Law. Demands close scrutiny on first start.

Fast Company filly cost €3,000 as a yearling. Half-sister to winner up to 1m2f Hurricane Seven and 6f-1m winner Yeats Man. Others seemingly with more going for them at this point.

Betting

Forecast

Royal Court (7/4), Double Martini (10/3), That's Mad (4/1), Designation (15/2), Nicaro (10/1), Stellar Dreams (14/1), Russian Vine (16/1), Soldier's Folly (20/1), Grufalo (33/1), De Main Lady (66/1)

Verdict

Royal Court is the obvious starting point. He has the experience and should be rewarded for consistency before long, but he's far from a certainty here and might again settle for minor honours. DESIGNATION changed hands for a tasty €105,000 as a yearling and may have a big say on debut for Willie McCreery. Nicaro is the other experienced runner with form of note in a race lacking depth.
