The Joseph O'Brien-trained SNAPRAETEREA
can improve on his debut win at Bellewstown to land the spoils in the opener. The Buratino colt recovered from a tardy start earlier this month, racing freely in the early stages to eventually settle as the penny dropped to lead the field of seven at the furlong marker, jumping a path, and going on to win by ½L. The Jessica Harrington-trained Oodnadatta
won with less fuss on debut at Leopardstown last month and can emerge as the biggest danger. Another winner on debut, No Stopping Her
from the Jack Davison yard should not be underestimated, nor should the Aidan O'Brien debutante Sir Lucan
, brother of Sir Dragonet.
