Winner of a Listed contest at York over 5f in August last year. Not disgraced in season finale in Group 2 company at the Breeders Cup when last seen in November. Notable runner dropping in grade.

Elzaam colt who is a half-brother to a 6f winner. Cost €7,000 as a yearling. Well down the field on debut run over 6f at this venue in March. Not one to place a great deal of faith in.

125/1
Trained in France last year, sold for 70,000gns in October. Won a maiden on soft. Fourth in Group events at about 5f on final starts for trainer Matthieu Palussiere. Profile suggests she is worth taking on in this grade.

Off the mark at the eighth time of asking on his second visit to Dundalk on the AW when landing an eight runner handicap in October. Well held at the same venue when last seen in December and easy to dismiss in this contest.

8/1
Winner of two of his seven career starts, all on turf. Second of 12 beaten a neck on his last start in a Group 3 contest at Newmarket in October. Slight concern over first time blinkers but should go well in 1,000 Guineas winning colours.

Three from five when trained in France in first half of 2019, including a 5f Listed win on good in first-time blinkers. Nothing of note in four starts for current connections and unlikely to worry the main protagonists here.

Finished 2L behind Southern Hills in the Listed Windsor Park at Royal Ascot 12 months ago before going on to win the Two-year-old trophy at Redcar in October. Looks a progressive type.

Winner of one of his seven career starts. Well held on latest start at this venue over 7f in March. Needs to improve to take a hand in the finish in this company.

Solid and consistent type, running well in a number of starts between May and September last year. Finished 1L adrift of A'Ali - well held at Newcastle last week - when last seen in September in a Doncaster Group 2 contest. Bit more needed.

Colt by Fullbright out of a Shamardal mare. Cost €11,000 as a yearling before changing hands for €25,000 as a two-year-old. Big ask making debut in this company.

Has failed to build on debut win at Gowran Park over 7f 12 months ago but ran with credit in a Listed contest at Fairyhouse in September finishing third of the five runners on yielding to soft ground.

Eight-race maiden on turf but off the mark at the 10th time of asking for connections when landing a 5f 6k contest on the AW at Dundalk in February. Well held at the same venue when last seen in March and could be vulnerable in this company.

Grand effort when second of 25 in Group 3 Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot in June before getting off the mark at the fifth attempt when landing a 9k contest on good ground over C&D in August. Needs to improve to mix it in this company.

Tough and talented filly who has run with plenty of credit over 5f in Listed/Group company. Beaten 2L when last seen in a Group 3 contest at Newmarket in October on final start for trainer Richard Fahey. No surprise to see a big run on stable debut.

Won a competitive maiden at Cork on debut and denied by the narrowest of margins in a 7f Listed event at Leopardstown before a gallant effort behind Millisle in the Group 1 Cheveley Park stakes at Newmarket in September. Capable of better still.

Off the mark at the second attempt in a Navan 5f maiden in July. Running well in defeat since on turf and on the AW at Dundalk. Gives the impression we may not have seen the best of her yet.

Forecasts

Summer Sands (10/3), Alligator Alley (7/2), Nurse Barbara (7/2), Southern Hills (6/1), Pistoletto (8/1), Wheels On Fire (11/1), Zarzyni (12/1), Punita Arora (22/1), Celtic Beauty (22/1), Flaming Princess (22/1), Real Appeal (50/1), American Lady (66/1), The Peckhampouncer (125/1), Fan Club Rules (125/1), On Tick (250/1), Elzaamone (400/1), Wonder Fullbright (400/1)

Verdict

SUMMER SANDS on his first start for trainer Joseph O'Brien can land the spoils in this Listed contest. The colt won the Two-year-old Trophy at Redcar on his last start on heavy ground in October and can progress in this event at the expense of the Ger Lyons-trained Nurse Barbara who ran well in defeat in the Group 1 Cheveley Park at Newmarket when last seen in September. Southern Hills, off the mark at the third time of asking for connections in the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot 12 months ago and Pistoletto, second in a Group 3 contest at Newmarket in October look capable of hitting the frame for trainer Aidan O'Brien.
