  • Short Change (20/1, Bet365)
    • Jockey: Oisin McSweeney | Trainer: Thomas Dowling
    • Mid-field finishes in previous starts, including a run at Navan over 5f. Needs to improve.
  • Hot To Foxtrot (10/1, Unibet)
    • Jockey: Luke McAteer | Trainer: Patrick T Foley
    • Placed third over 7f at Fairyhouse last time out. May need the run after an eight-month break.
  • Marble Angel (3/1, Bet365)
    • Jockey: W J Lee | Trainer: A Oliver
    • Showed promise when third at Sligo, handling soft ground well. Should be a major contender.
  • Emerald Harmony (5/1, Unibet)
    • Jockey: Ben Coen | Trainer: J P Murtagh
    • Consistent with two sixth-place finishes over 5f. Can improve over this longer distance.
  • Help Me Rhonda (15/2, Betvictor)
    • Jockey: J M Sheridan | Trainer: J A Stack
    • Inexperienced and green on debut at Cork over a mile. Expected to progress with this outing.
  • Lady Daar (11/1, Bet365)
    • Jockey: Gary Carroll | Trainer: Gavin Cromwell
    • Shaped well on debut when mid-field over 5f at Navan. Should come on for that experience.
  • Pink Oxalis (6/1, Unibet)
    • Jockey: Seamie Heffernan | Trainer: Joseph G Murphy
    • Disappointed last time when too keen over a mile at Gowran. Drop in trip could help.
  • Sara Valentina (6/1, Betvictor)
    • Jockey: Chris Hayes | Trainer: D K Weld
    • Faded late when not getting home over a mile at Leopardstown. Should fare better here.
  • Soar Beyond (40/1, Bet365)

    • Well beaten in both starts. Needs significant improvement to feature.
  • Warazam (66/1, Unibet)
    • Jockey: Ronan Whelan | Trainer: Jarlath P Fahey
    • Finished last over 7f at Gowran. Difficult to recommend based on that run.

Verdict

Marble Angel looks the one to beat with her solid third-place finish at Sligo. Pink Oxalis and Sara Valentina also have the potential to improve and could challenge for top honors.

  • Lord Church (5/2, Bet365)
    • Jockey: Ronan Whelan | Trainer: M Halford & T Collins
    • Has shown respectable performances in maidens at Curragh and Leopardstown last season; now gelded and could improve.

  • Weston Grey (9/1, Betvictor)
    • Jockey: Gavin Ryan | Trainer: Daniel James Murphy
