5/1

Maiden win on debut before finishing second of six in a Group 3 contest here in July. Well held in similar company since and can be dangerous stepping up in trip on handicap debut.

Galileo filly out of a Danehill mare. Closely related to Frankel and Order Of St George. Disappointed connections with a return of only one from seven but demands respect dropping in to handicap company for the first time .

Won her maiden last season on heavy ground at Galway in September of 7f, hasn't really looked like adding to the tally since, including in a couple of starts this season. Liable to find a couple stronger.

Maiden winner at Fairyhouse but she failed to make her presence felt in five subsequent starts towards the end of last season. Promising start to the season finishing sixth of 13 beaten 4L at Gowran Park last month and likely to improve.

Camelot filly, related to a number of winners. Eased right down on October's debut here but looked a different proposition with an easy Cork maiden win last month before disappointing earlier this month in Group 3 company. Chances on handicap debut.

Winner over this trip on the AW at Dundalk in December but remains a five-race maiden on turf. Plenty to like about the War Command fillies second of five at Killarney earlier this month and worth a market check.

A winner on handicap debut but well beaten when stepped up to Group 3 company on her last two starts. Should be a leading contender back in this grade.

14/1

Home-bred Vocalised filly out of a Dylan Thomas mare, made winning start in 1m Gowran Park maiden before a 2L defeat in a Leopardstown 7f handicap in October. Disappointing return on seasonal debut at Naas in March and best watched here.

Betting

Forecast

Fire Fly (3/1), Elleanthus (4/1), Viadera (5/1), Lady Wannabe (7/1), I Remember You (8/1), Vallambrosa (8/1), Lafayette Hill (11/1), Leagan Gaeilge (14/1)

Verdict

The Aidan O'Brien and Ryan Moore combination can land the spoils here with the Galileo filly FIRE FLY, who can build on her 3½L defeat in a Group 3 contest at Leopardstown earlier this month. Winner of a Tipperary maiden in August, the filly can hold off the challenge of the Ger Lyons-trained, Viadera and stablemate of the selection, I Remember You, who may well be a lot better than her initial seasonal starts suggest.
