2/9

Leopardstown mile maiden winner last summer. Good run behind Japan in Group 2 Beresford Stakes after. Third in Ballysax Stakes on seasonal return and second 1m5f listed event at Navan penultimate start. Outclassed Ascot latest but big chance here.

4/1

Caught the eye on debut at Gowran in May over a mile, then popped up at 12/1 to win 1m2f Down Royal maiden last month. Open to further improvement and looks sure to be thereabouts.

20/1

Mount Nelson gelding cost 22,000 euros as a yearling. Racecourse debut here and likely to improve for the outing, unless market indicates he's above average. Stable companion of Shared Ambition.

100/1

Dunaden filly who has hinted at a litle ability in two Limerick maidens over extended 1m3f, but this looks tough and will probably do better once handicapped.

12/1

Xtension filly who offers mixed messages from pedigree. Behind until stayed on late on debut at Bellewstown earlier in the month, suggesting she's up to winning a race or two. Market worth monitoring for any sign of confidence.

Betting

Forecast

Pythion (2/9), Shared Ambition (4/1), X' Girl (12/1), Snow Leopard (20/1), Rare Pearl (100/1)

Verdict

PYTHION is the obvious call given his good form in pattern company but he won't have it all his own way. Nonetheless, it will be a surprise if he fails to land a second career victory. Shared Ambition is unexposed and won well last time, suggesting he might be decent. He should make a race of it with the selection, while 'X' Girl has plenty to find but made a fair start on debut and should have learned plenty.
