Colt by Mukhadram out of a Dalakhani mare. Closely related to dual winner Bashiyr and Balansiya runner-up in Group 3 Irish 1,000 Guineas Trial. Market likely to be the best guide on debut.

Gelding by Ruler Of The World out of a Dalakhani mare. Cost €7,000 as a yearling. Ran well in defeat on debut at Navan earlier this month but needs to step up on that effort in this company.

Nayef colt. Full-brother to Snow Sky and Ice Breeze, and a half-brother to another two winners. Can be expected to improve on debut run in a Tipperary 1m1f maiden on soft to heavy ground earlier this month. First-time visor to assist.

War Command colt out of a Traditionally mare. Half brother to five winners. Well beaten on first couple of career starts and unlikely to be making any significant impact in this contest.

Three-race maiden. Eighth of 14 beaten over 8L on AW debut at this track last month over 6f. Could be worth a market check as post time approaches given significant step up in trip.

Colt by Excelebration out of a Dance Brightly mare. Dam, winner of two races on AW surface over 6f and 7f. Probably best watched on debut unless market vibes suggest otherwise.

Sir Prancealot gelding out of a Creachadoir mare. Disappointing debut here over 7f last month well held when beaten 11L. Could improve for first-time blinkers.

Elusive City colt out of a Dixieland Band mare. Improved dramatically from first start to second when running Stela Star to a neck over C&D last month. Winner has since landed the Group 3 Killavullan Stakes at Leopardstown. Leading player.

Not disgraced in three career starts to date but needs to improve on a 6L defeat in a Navan 1m soft ground maiden earlier this month. Not one to underestimate.

Footstepsinthesand gelding out of a Kingmambo mare. Closely related to seven-time winner Sonnetation victorious at 1m and 1m1½f. Dam, winner of five of her 15 AW starts between 1m and 1m½f. Entitled to need this on debut.

Filly by War Command out of a Street Cry mare. Closely related to Argenterie winner over 7f and Shir Khan, successful at 1m1½f. Promising effort on debut over 7f earlier this month needs to be backed up in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

Thames River (5/4), Sliabh Aughty (2/1), Sweettasteoflove (15/2), Stinglikeabee (8/1), Balmari (10/1), Franno (10/1), Cardinal Rule (14/1), Our Shakila (16/1), Classify (20/1), Perry Owens (25/1), Sir I'll Chance It (50/1), Vanatinai Ranger (50/1), Shake A Leg (66/1), Varna Gold (66/1), Sydney Blues (66/1), Shabra's O B (100/1), On The Rhine (100/1)

Verdict

THAMES RIVER for trainer/jockey combination of Joseph and Donnacha O'Brien can improve on his solid debut run over 7f earlier this month finishing second of 14 at this venue to win on his second career start stepping up in trip. The Free Eagle colt can hold off the intentions of Sliabh Aughty who ran future Group 3 Killavullan Stakes winner, Stela Star to a neck here over 7f last month. The Dermot Weld-trained, Prince Khalid Abdullah-owned, Nayef colt, Classify can be expected to improve on his first run at Tipperary earlier this month. Stinglikeabee for trainer Sheila Lavery and debutante Balmari could be lively outsiders on this surface.
