Has struggled to get going this campaign, finishing a long way behind Making Light at Cork on his latest start. No reason why he'd reverse the form today and Group 2 level seems to be a bridge to far for him.
Below his best this term, safely held by Making Light on running in a Cork Listed race

Impressive Group 3 winner as a three-year-old for his previous yard, extremely poor in five runs thereafter. Latest run at the Curragh was a step in the right direction, but he's far from guaranteed to build on that today.
Signs of a return to form when third at the Curragh last time, hard to fancy all the same

Handicap winner at Naas in May, yet to strike in pattern company. He was poor in a Listed race at Listowel on Monday and things only get tougher here. Pincheck flies the flag for the yard.

Arrives here on the back of a course and distance Group 3 victory, flying away to win by three lengths. Prior to that, however, he was safely held by Making Light and he'll need another step forward to be reversing those placings.

Hasn't quite progressed as expected since a Listed winner over course and distance in June. No match for Pincheck in a course and distance Group 3 in August, unlikely to be good enough here.
Third to Pincheck in a Group 3 a month ago, needs a career-best to reach the money here

Posted a career-best by some margin when impressive winning a Cork Listed race, brushing aside Pincheck by three lengths. Ahead of Alexios Komnenos as well and no surprise were he to have anymore to offer.

Made it third time lucky with a comfortable success at Gowran Park over 1m 1f, with that form looking plenty modest enough. He's unexposed, granted, but it's hard to believe he can improve enough to take this contest.

Won the Ruby Stakes at Killarney last month in great style, failing to build on that run when only fifth in a Group 3 at Tipperary eight days ago. Ryan Moore takes the ride which is interesting, but she does need to bounce back quickly.
