Ostraka: Struggled at Naas but showed good form previously at Cork. Capable of a strong showing. Best odds: 6/1

2. Indigo Five (5/1) – Betvictor

Whisper A Prayer: Finished third behind Classic winner Ezelia at two. Interesting contender on her handicap debut. Best odds: 18/1

Breathe Again: Showed promise with a third place at Limerick. Could be an interesting each-way prospect on her first handicap outing. Best odds: 12/1

Villanova Queen: Winner of last season’s Kensington Palace Stakes. Held by Caernarfon based on Pontefract form. Best odds: 25/1
