Forecasts

Damselfly (2/1), Kion (9/4), Stewardess (11/4), Kimono Girl (5/1), Miratio (11/2), Zeb City (8/1), Oyster Queen (12/1), Premier League (14/1), Scarlet Ribbons (14/1), Wilful Spirit (14/1), Flojo (33/1), Bellick (40/1), On Fleek (50/1), Just Waterville (66/1), Camacho Dancer (150/1)

Verdict

If KION progresses from his promising showing at the Curragh last month on second start, when just nailed on the line over 6f, then he'll take some stopping here. The drop in distance looks fine and this is not a strong maiden on paper. Zeb City also improved on second start and is respected while Damselfly is unfortunate to still be a maiden having twice been denied over this trip at Cork, though she may want a better surface. Stewardess has been going the right way and can play a hand in the finish while Kimono Girl is given another chance after a poor show last time at Navan having looked promising on debut over this trip (finished ahead of Stewardess).
  1. Kion
