Handicap debutant from a top yard so not ruled out here despite not on the face of it being well treated with this opening mark.

Fast finishing third on seasonal bow/handicap debut at Cork and built on that to score at Gowran latest. 9lb rise makes life tougher but extra 1f here will almost certainly yield improvement.

Not won since debut at Gowran and latest midfield effort on return over 1m½f suggested handicap high enough although perhaps she improves on second start back.

13½L behind Njord on handicap bow at Gowran and weight pull not nearly enough to suggest she turns the tables.

Not disgraced on first two starts this season and perhaps didn't stay 1mf latest in dismal display at Leopardstown. Could do better for this trip so not ruled out altogether.

Galileo filly out of a Holy Roman Emperor mare related to Frankel and Australia. Sixth and two sevenths at two but should improve now and latest run very much franked by the winner. Intriguing contender.

Improved from his first three starts to finish runner-up twice at Dundalk last November. Must now prove as effective on turf and after a break.

Fourth of 18 on handicap bow over 1m½f a promising effort although well held in same position since at Navan over 1m2f. Not ruled out of making the frame here in a weak contest.

Shown ability on the AW and wasn't disgraced on handicap debut at Gowran before shade below that since at Sligo. May just be that handicap mark high enough.

Landed a claimer at Fairyhouse in September (7f, good to yielding) but has questions to answer as a handicapper based on runs so far this season.

Somewhat unfortunate in seventh of 18 at Fairyhouse just two days ago when squeezed up on the rail. Extra 1f to suit here but plenty to find with Njord on clash at Gowran earlier.

Drop back to 1m at Killarney latest yielded some improvement despite it looking as if he would still prefer further. Can win off this sort of mark but nagging doubts at the trip.

Little impression in five starts including handicaps the last twice and easy enough to pass up here.

Fifth of 15 on handicap bow at Cork (1m2f) a massive step up and given he didn't seem to quite stay this drop back to 1m could see him in an even better light. One of the more likely sorts.

Little to recommend her in three ordinary starts last summer but after a break she could do better and her trainer's runners this spring have almost all been in fine form.

Handicap debut at Southwell (AW) showed signs of promise but subsequent struggle at Curragh suggested he's best left alone here.

First Reserve: Massive step up on handicap debut at Gowran latest when fourth of 16 and off a 1lb lower mark he would merit respect if getting a run.

Verdict

In one of the most difficult contests you will see anywhere on this busy Saturday a chance is taken on Ballydoyle handicap debutant Tracing who was behind subsequent Group Three winning stablemate Listen when last sighted; there are no rivals of that calibre here. A 9lb rise for his recent win may leave Njord vulnerable but he will surely still be thereabouts where it matters again. Light Breeze also appeals after a step up latest, a string run 1m may be ideal.
