Foaled February 28. €1,500 yearling, Requinto filly. Half-sister to 7f/1m winner Ashton Rose. Dam unraced half-sister to smart 1m winner Adjareli.

Verdict

Fozzy Stack's Sirici got the better of Spirit Power here by one-and-a-half-lengths over course and distance last time and are both high up on the shortlist once again. However, it is hard to ignore the claims of the Ballydoyle newcomer MOUNT WELLINGTON, a 475,000 euro purchase as a yearling, who must surely play a major part on his racecourse debut.

Verdict

MOUNT WELLINGTON makes plenty of appeal on paper and can make a winning start at the main expense of Sirici and Spirit Power.

Verdict

This race revolves around RIVELLINO, who will be extremely hard to beat if the seven-year-old can run to anywhere near his official rating of 94. The worry has to be his run at Naas earlier in the month but he can still outclass his rivals here. Strategic Heights has shown his best form at this track and he could prove to be a solid each-way pick against the selection, while Complicit and Master Bond are others to note.

Verdict

RIVELLINO probably needed the run on his first outing for this yard 12 days ago and will prove hard to beat if coming back to the form he showed for Karl Burke. Strategic Heights and Complicit are feared most.

Verdict

Idyllic Acrylic could make up into a nice three-year-old this year and on her juvenile form she must be respected off 71 making her seasonal and handicap debut. Brave Display has clearly improved over the winter and is another to keep a close eye on, but BUDDHA BOY is the sole course scorer in the field, a track and trip winner to boot, and is expected to better his latest fifth-placed effort over 7f now dropping back in trip off the same mark.

Verdict

BRAVE DISPLAY went close in a visor here 6 weeks ago and an opening mark of 61 seems fair on that form. C&D winner Buddha Boy is another to consider, while Reek Sunday is open to improvement.

Verdict

Repare Mon is respected on her hat-trick bid but could find life tougher now, having been handed a further 10lb rise from the handicapper, with jockey Sean Davis only able to claim four of his usual 7lb allowance in this contest for the junior jockeys. The consistent Settle For Red is considered stepping up trip but slight preference is for Tony Martin's TROPIC THUNDER who made a likeable return to the all-weather last time, having wintered over hurdles, and can go close off the same handicap mark.

Verdict

REPARE MON is going the right way and is taken to defy the handicapper and complete a hat-trick. Ruby Gates is building up a solid record here and should figure again, while Tropic Thunder shaped well when third over 10f here last time and could have more to offer for new handler Tony Martin.

Famous Name filly. Dam once-raced half-sister to ungenuine winner up to 6f Rock Jock and 1m-1¼m winner Breden (both useful) out of useful 7f winner Perfect Touch.

Verdict

Harbour Beacon sets the form standard based on his two 1m runs at Navan and is worth a try over this longer trip on his seasonal return, though narrow preference is for the once-raced DETAILED, a daughter of Motivator who was understandably outpaced over 1m here on debut in December but is bred to come into her own now granted this stiffer test. Shahroze is going the right way and is another capable of taking a hand.

Verdict

HARBOUR BEACON shaped well when runner-up twice over 1m last autumn and can go one better here with the step up in trip expected to be in his favour. Shahroze stepped up on his debut when second over 1m here in November and should have more to offer for the Mick Halford team, while Detailed is likely to build on her course debut in December.

Twice-raced maiden. Seventh of 14 in maiden at this course (7f, 33/1). Off 119 days.

Verdict

GLASTONBURY SONG made a big impression when he was successful on his racecourse debut here last September. The son of Casamento was slightly disappointing when fifth in a Listed race at Leopardstown a fortnight ago but that was only his second career start and it is far too soon to be writing him off. Asking broke her maiden tag over C&D when last seen and she could give the selection the most to think about, although Branch Line is another with valid claims.

Verdict

ASKING came good in this headgear combination over C&D last time and is taken to follow up with further progress on the cards, but both Glastonbury Son and Branch Line are good enough to ensure that Aidan O'Brien's filly won't have things all her own way.
