2 x Distance Winner - Won 2 times before at this distance
Dual Group 2 winner in Germany, but he was well held in two starts in Australia earlier this year. Respectable second on his stable debut in a 1m1f Group 3 here last month; holds forecast claims behind Madhmoon.

Winner of the preceding renewal of this race, but he has failed to add to that success from his six subsequent starts. Well held in a Group 3 here last time out; just under five lengths behind Ancient Spirit. Now two pounds worse off with that rival.
Won this event 12 month ago, had a spell in America, behind Ancient Spirit here last time

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 1 wins from 24 in the last 14 days (4%)
Winner of back-to-back handicaps earlier this season. Held in three stakes races afterwards, but he justified favouritism to score at Naas last time out. This is a significantly tougher assignment though, and he is expected to come up short.
Made the most of a good opportunity in a 7f Naas conditions event, forecast material here

Unbeaten from two juvenile outings; both victories coming over this course and distance. No wins from his four starts so far this campaign, but he has run some fine races in defeat; close second in the Derby. Should be tough to beat today.
Derby second and Irish Derby fourth, boasts smart 1m form by virtue of Guineas fourth

Hot Recent Form Jockey - 10 wins from 30 in the last 14 days (33%)
Justified favouritism to land a Ballinrobe handicap last month, but he has not been at that level of form in his two subsequent runs. Now steps into Group company for the first time in his career; best watched.
Ran twice at Galway after Killarney and Ballinrobe wins, up against it at this level

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Gained two wins from his three juvenile starts, but he is 0-4 so far this campaign. Not disgraced in a Listed race at the Curragh last time out, but this looks a far tougher task; vulnerable at the weights this evening.
Won twice last season, looks vulnerable at this level on what he has shown this term

Course Winner - Won before at this course
Sole victory from her eleven starts to date came in a seven-furlong handicap here last October; 0-7 so far this campaign. Has her stamina still to prove over this far, and the yard appears to hold stronger claims with Turnberry Isle.
Course nursery winner, has failed to reach the first three in five stakes-race attempts

Verdict
