Zoffany colt. Solid efforts in three career starts finishing in the runner up position on each occasion when not beaten far. Likely to be a warm order on polytrack debut.

3/1

No Nay Never colt out of a Green Desert mare. Four-race maiden but has shown enough in a couple of starts over this trip to put her in the mix on polytrack introduction.

Gelding by Slade Power out of a Distant View mare. Closely related to multiple winners Kingaroo and Norman Open, three-time winner on the AW running over 7f and 1m. Not disgraced on debut over 5f earlier this month but more needed here.

Colt by Exceed And Excel out of a Iceman mare. Dam won over 1m who stayed 1m2f. More required from dismal debut run at the Curragh in October finishing last of 13 beaten 25L.

Colt by Anjaal out of a Piccolo mare mare. Closely related to French winner over 7½f Andreino. Needs to improve on debut run here over 7f earlier this month when last of 14.

Never a factor in three career starts to date when sent off at big prices before running accordingly on each occasion. May find this tough.

33/1

Five-race maiden for trainer Mark Johnston before a 9,000gns move to current connections. Better than a number of performances suggest and one for the final shortlist here.

First Reserve: Dandy Man filly who was foaled on March 10 and cost €13,500 as a yearling. Never a factor on debut in a Naas 6f maiden earlier this month. Up against it if making the race.

Betting

Forecast

Johan Zoffani (4/7), Never Before (3/1), Turbo Command (6/1), Matera (13/2), All About Ivy (8/1), Power Ahead (12/1), Glorious Hero (12/1), Intervention (20/1), Summit Rock (25/1), Bolly Bullet (25/1), Feelinlikeasomeone (33/1), Deadwood (33/1), Power And Pace (50/1), Max's Dandy (50/1), Star And Crescent (66/1), Eloquent Poet (80/1), Zeeshan (100/1)

Verdict

Difficult to get away from the chances of the Michael O'Callaghan-trained JOHAN ZOFFANI as the colt makes his polytrack debut here. The youngster can build on the experience of his opening three starts to get off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking. The Joseph O'Brien-trained Never Before appears to be next best with Turbo Command and Feelinlikeasomeone likely to battle it out for remaining prize money. Glorious Hero could be worth noting in the betting as the Tamayuz colt makes his debut.
  1. Johan Zoffani
