Already gelded son of Alhebayeb out of a Owington mare. Closely related to multiple winner between 6f and 1m on the AW/turf. Possible best watched for Co Meath yard having a quiet time of things at the moment.

By Kitten's Joy. Expensive recruit to top Jumps stable. Sales price went up from $110,000 as a yearling, to €160,000 as a two-year-old. Never on terms in a rough debut run at the Curragh last month. Worth a market check.

Son of Authorized and out of a mare who won over 7f and 1m1f in France. Promising second of 14 beaten ½L behind Howling Wolf in a Leopardstown 7f maiden last month. Leading claims given pedigree.

Gelding by Dragon Pulse out of a Invincible Spirit mare. Last of nine on a disappointing debut at Fairyhouse over 6f last month. Hard to fancy.

Daughter of Starspangledbanner who has been generally well held in a couple of career starts so far. Not one to underestimate with experience on her side.

Stoutly-bred related to plenty of winners around this distance and beyond. Needs a chunk of improvement from debut run at Tipperary last month to play a part in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

Alpine Star (7/4), Santiago (9/4), Longclaw (4/1), Kassaba (4/1), Agent Zero (13/2), Baby Bear (14/1), Chrysalism (20/1), Craic Eile (25/1), Convincer (33/1), Nudge The Judge (66/1), Ahaziah (66/1), The Hard Harry (66/1)

Verdict

The Dermot Weld yard have a solid record in this race in the last eight years and their KASSABA can land the spoils here. The stable boast a 50% strike rate in this contest in the last eight years winning with three youngsters from six runners and can see off the challenges in the shape of the Jessica Harrington improver, Alpine Star and the Aiden O'Brien-trained Santiago. Progressive runs from Agent Zero, Longclaw and Chrysalism would not come as a surprise.
