Newcomer by Power is a half-brother to 6f and 7f winner Lake George and 1m3f winner She's An Art. Small stable representative looks best watched against Ballydoyle et al.

By Zoffany out of 1m2f winner Cushion, herself a daughter of 1000 Guineas winner Attraction. Weakened late after racing freely on debut here three weeks ago behind Lope Y Fernandez, and likely to improve markedly.

£58,000 yearling by Gutaifan made little impression in maidens at Down Royal and Galway and understandably Colin Keane prefers Leadership Race. One for nurseries after today.

Unraced son of Camelot who cost 92,000gns as a yearling. Is a half-brother to 7 winners from 5f-1m4f. Trip should suit on debut and market will be a good guide to expectations for respected yard.

Newcomer by Fracas out of an unraced half-sister to useful 1m-1m2f winner Eighteen Summers. Yard 0-20 with turf two-year-olds in 2019 so best watched here.

American Pharoah colt, cost $1m as a yearling. Half-brother to five winners including a Group 1 winner so bred firmly in the purple. Short of room when seventh here on debut but still in host of big races so expectations much greater now.

€40,000 yearling by Brazen Beau was slightly hampered over 1 1/2f out when seventh of 16 on debut at Naas last month. Can do better now and looks stable number one; each-way potential.

Never involved when finishing 33L last of five over an extended 7f at Tipperary on debut and even with slight improvement next his ninth of 13 over 6f at Leopardstown beaten 11L gives him heaps to find.

Son of Dandy Man bought for €12,000 as a foal. Half-brother to 5 winners including smart hurdler and 1m2f Flat scorer Manhattan Swing. Best watched here for smaller stable.

Son of Pivotal was beaten 10½L into seventh of 12 here over 6f on debut in June. Longer trip and experience gained gives hope for better here but anything more than a place would appear unlikely.

Blue-blooded debutant is by Galileo and brother to dual Guineas and Dewhurst winner Churchill and Cheveley Park winner Clemmie. One of the very best bred horses in training and a hugely exciting newcomer.

Improved plenty on midfield Roscommon debut when beaten a nose in a 7f Down Royal maiden latest. That as good a form as any on offer for yard with 26 per cent strike rate with two-year-olds so obvious chance here.

Once raced son of Zoffany is closely related to 1m Listed winner Queen Titi. Noted making late headway when sixth of 12 here behind more fancied stablemate and was only beaten 3L. Part of an exceptionally strong Ballydoyle quartet.

Sixth of nine at Navan and 11th of 14 at Limerick so far are efforts vastly short of the required here and he looks one for nurseries.

Unraced son of stallion sensation Kingman is a half-brother to 1m4f-2m Listed winner Silwana and smart 1m2f winner Summaya. National Stakes entered so one to take close note of in the market.

Remote 10th and 11th in 14-runner maidens to date make him one easy to rule out at this stage.

Last of six on debut at Killarney and ran to a similar level next when fifth of eight at Galway. This much stronger and in all likelihood he will struggle.

Newcomer by Dragon Pulse went unsold at auction as the first foal out of a twice raced (both last place) maiden. Makes little appeal on paper.

Daughter of Free Eagle was absolutely no factor when a distant 13th of 14 on debut at Naas over 7f beaten 24L. Can only hope for better here.

Forecast

Sherpa (11/4), Hong Kong (11/4), Bright Idea (9/2), Recall The Show (7/1), Paradiso (10/1), Fiscal Prudence (12/1), Leadership Race (14/1), Degraves (16/1), Sinawann (16/1), Meaningful Vote (20/1), Simply True (50/1), Lady Jane Wilde (66/1), Convincer (66/1), Manhattan Dandy (66/1), Bo's Beech (66/1), Troop Commander (100/1), Londonofficecallin (100/1), Wyett Earp (100/1), Taty Gold (100/1)

Verdict

Although on the face of it being the third string of Ballydoyle and even taking into consideration Aidan O'Brien's two-year-old's tendency for needing their first run a chance is taken on PARADISO who could be precocious given he is a full-brother to two two-year-old Group One winners. The mount of Ryan Moore so the perceived stable number one, $1m son of American Pharoah Hong Kong is expected to leave his debut well behind and he too is preferred to the form standard setter Recall The Show for the prolific source of two-year-old winners Jessica Harrington.
