8/1

86-rated Listowel 1m winner ran well back over 6f last time. Appreciates testing conditions and interesting yard with huge crop of juveniles pitches just him into this valuable race.

Off the mark last time at the Curragh in a heavy ground handicap over 1m where he won emphatically off a mark of 69. Altogether tougher task here but ground conditions will suit and he isn't ruled out altogether.

Twice raced colt looks stable second string on evidence so far with two fair efforts in maidens here and at Limerick. Tall order against numerous winners.

Another for mob-handed Ger Lyons, this colt improved on a midfield turf debut to finish third on the AW at Dundalk latest. Tough ask in this company.

Winner of a 20-runner 1m handicap at this course last time off a mark of 71. This demands more but looks one of the more likely sorts.

Looks stable third string having placed just once in three starts and latest effort at Fairyhouse a retrograde step. Others preferred.

Never a factor when 11th of 18 on debut at the Curragh but altogether different performance on his second start where he landed an 18-runner Navan maiden over 5½f in good style. 7f still has to be proven but certainly one to shortlist.

Winner of a 6½f heavy ground Limerick maiden latest on her second start where she came right away from 12 rivals. One of the more interesting unexposed runners in this contest.

Off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking when landing a Fairyhouse 6f maiden and ran another cracker latest when second in a 6f Listed race behind a runaway winner. Claims now in this weaker race.

One of four for the stable; he has progressed with each start culminating in a third of 17 at Navan over 1m last time out. Taller order here however.

Lone representative for yard with fine crop of two-year-olds. Stable second string when winning impressively in her second start at Listowel over this trip on soft ground and merits maximum respect here.

Off the mark at Cork last time in an ordinary 6f maiden. This looks significantly deeper so may struggle now.

Dundalk winner in May had limitations exposed since and looks less progressive than most so one to avoid.

Betting

Forecast

Schroders Mistake (11/4), Brunelle (11/4), Elite Legion (4/1), Miss Myers (9/2), Layfayette (7/1), Franklin Street (8/1), Crassus (10/1), Lustown Baba (12/1), Luke Short (12/1), Early Bright (14/1), Sliabh Aughty (14/1), Stela Star (16/1), Estepona Sun (20/1), Borelli (25/1), First Thing (25/1), Windham Belle (33/1), Spiritual Son (100/1), At War (100/1), Taggalo (100/1)

Verdict

Although she has to prove that she handles 7f BRUNELLE looks the one to side with here and Colin Keane's pick of Ger Lyons' quartet gets the vote here. Unexposed Listowel winner Elite Legion has to be feared for all-conquering Jessie Harrington. Also on the shortlist is Schroders Mistake who chased home a Ballydoyle filly who'd been fourth in Group One company the time before 7 days ago.
