C&D winner got off the mark for the season when taking the Glencairn Stakes with the minimum of fuss at this track. Back down to 7f now and should go very well once more returned to group company.
Admirable campaigner who is showing no signs of going off the boil at the age of 11. Posted best run of his 2019 campaign so far when third in the G2 Greenlands Stakes at the Curragh. Major contender returned to slightly less exalting company.
Had been running well prior to turning in a poor effort at Listowel (6f; yielding). May not have enjoyed giving lumps of weight away that day. Had placed in Listed company before that effort so not one to totally write off.
Has been up and down in good company recently. Proved disappointing when seventh of eight in a Listed contest at Naas (7f; good to firm) last time but would hold genuine claims if able to recapture the form of her third in G3 company two starts ago.
Lightly raced sort compared to a few of these. Got three-year-old campaign off to the perfect start when winning a Listed contest, but failed to back that up when eighth in the G3 Lacken Stakes at Naas (6f; good to firm). Could get back on track.
One of two in this race for trainer. Has more of a realistic chance than her stable companion, but even then she still has to improve a fair bit to get involved. Unexposed though and has claims receiving weight from all her rivals.
Improved for the switch to nurseries last season as a two-year-old but has been nowhere near good enough since returning to the track this year. Subsequently dropped a couple of lbs in the handicap recently and has it all to do at this level.
