49-8OR: 75BF
9/2

Found a real level of consistency of late with two seconds at Naas and a C&D fourth of 16 in his last three starts. Went oh-so close last time out in a maiden and he should again make a bold bid as the top-rated performer.

Now having his 17th start and for all he has some fair efforts of late including last time out he would be considerably better off with some of these in a handicap so looks up against it.

Yet to make the frame although last two efforts over 5½f at Navan (fifth of 18) and 7f at Galway (sixth of 15) certainly show a modicum of ability but he is up against it at the weights today.

Promising fifth of 15 on debut at Fairyhouse before latest fourth of 16 at Naas when 1¼L behind Hiella who is the best treated horse in this race according to weight/rating. With more improvement likely he is a big player.

Placed in all three starts in 2019 from 6f-1m and a repeat of any of those should again see him making a bold bid although the slight doubt is him tackling 5f for the first time.

Unplaced in six starts between 6f and 1m2½f. Drops fully 5f from his latest effort but basically just looks a quite ordinary performer.

Newcomer by unfashionable sire Le Cadre Noir is a brother to 5f-6f winner Polly Douglas. Market can guide but likelihood certainly that he's best watched.

Raced once as a juvenile for Andre Fabre in France before missing all of 2018. Fourth, third and second placed efforts in maidens this season show her more than capable of landing a race of this nature and merits respect here.

Well held in all five starts so far and plenty to find rivals she's met here along the way.

Remote 16th of 18 on debut at Navan was a pretty disappointing debut given yard she hails from and even with improvement likely she can't be fancied after that.

Three rather disappointing races have seen her 9th, 11th and 13th so far and makes no appeal here.

39-0OR:

Plenty to like about her two starts as a juvenile but flopped when a remote 19th of 22 back in March at Navan. Layoff since suggests something came to light so may bounce back and market check worthwhile.

39-0OR: 69

Improved with each of her three starts and neck second of 16 at Naas latest at 25/1 has earnt her a rating of 69 which means that she is the best treated here according to handicap marks. Obvious chance and bold bid looks assured.

Unraced daughter of Siyouni is a half-sister to 7½f-1m1½f winner Vieux Moulin out of a dam from a stamina laden family, This trip ought to be sharp enough but given connections she is certainly not one to rule out.

Betting

Forecast

Castletownshend (9/2), Hiella (5/1), Sun Sign (5/1), Siyou In Deauville (5/1), Sacchoandvanzetti (13/2), No Nay Yellow (8/1), Dee Sprinter (10/1), Fridtjof Nansen (14/1), Glamorous Power (20/1), Strong Johnson (33/1), Dream Angle (33/1), Secret Secret (50/1), Emma's Girl (66/1), Countess Matilda (100/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken on twice raced NO NAY YELLOW finding the 1¼L he was beaten by the best treated horse in this contest according to official ratings Hiella last time out given that rival has had a race more. Certainly both should be in the shake-up with slight preference for Fozzy Stack's son of top-sire No Nay Never. Others likely to be in the mix are Sun Sign and Castletownshend.
