Fair sort with 4-32 career record on turf, latest success coming at Gowran Park over this trip in May from 3lb lower. Not beaten far last month at the Curragh off this rating and should go well for in-form handler.
Frankel colt, won a course maiden over similar trip on second start in May, bit disappointing since on handicap at Limerick (1m, yielding; 6-1) but should improve on that and forecast ground in his favour.
Shamardal colt won a Cork maiden with something in hand on debut in May and ran well since at Fairyhouse in this grade. Doing best work late on and should have learned from that experience. Likely sort.
1lb lower now than last win but not really performed to his level in last two efforts after a sound fifth at Cork before which would give him a real chance. Engaged here on Tuesday evening.
Maiden winner at Naas in November, his sole success from nine starts. This will be a fifth run since the start of June and by no means a Ballydoyle star but perfectly entitled to go well in this company.
