1.45 Coolmore Calyx Race 5f

The Antarctic can maintain his unbeaten record. He made a bright start to his career at Tipperary last month where he overcame heavy ground and a lack of previous experience to defeat Wodao.

The latter is again in opposition and is 3lbs better off but he went into that race with a run under his belt and The Antarctic can be expected to progress from his initial outing. Mehmar is respected as he fetched £200,000 at the Goffs UK Breeze-Up Sale last month and he is a son of a sire whose juveniles do especially well while his dam also won as a juvenile.

2.15 Sole Power Sprint Stakes (Listed) 5f

This could fall to Geocentric who was a very useful sprinting juvenile last season and looks to have trained on well on the evidence of last month’s comeback over this course and distance where she finished second to Romantic Proposal.

She could take beating if turning out in similar form and she is preferred to Measure Of Magic who won two listed races and was third in the Commonwealth Cup last season. She had to settle for fifth behind Power Under Me when making her comeback at Cork. However, she is entitled to progress well from that comeback. A similar comment applies to Logo Hunter who looked a potentially top notch sprinter last term and he was having his first run since July when finishing further back in that Cork race.


Next best: Measure Of Magic

2.45 Coolmore Stud Irish EBF Fillies Sprint Stakes (Group 3) 5f 205yds

Matilda Piccote impressed at the Curragh just under two weeks ago with a trail-blazing effort in a median auction maiden where she defeated Comhra by two lengths and the latter franked the form with a subsequent win at Roscommon.

This Sioux Nation filly could once again take some catching from the front and she might last home from Meditate who looked a nice type when making a winning start to her career at the Curragh over a month ago. Treasure Trove is an interesting filly who could progress.


Next best: Meditate

3.15 Owenstown Stud Stakes (Listed) 7f

This can see Bopedro justify his position as the highest-rated runner in the field. He produced a couple of high class handicap efforts last season, namely when winning the Irish Cambridgeshire before running third to Masen off of 103 in a seven-furlong handicap on Irish Champions Weekend.

He goes well fresh, looks good enough to make his mark at this level and can deal with Lust who has run two good races over this trip this season, the most recent of which was a second to Raadobarg in a conditions race at Tipperary. Diadora, a listed winner in Germany last season, and Dantes Pass are others to note.


Next best: Lust

3.45 Goffs Lacken Stakes (Group 3) 5f 205yds

Straight Answer found New York City a length too strong when they met in a listed race at Navan less than a month ago.

The latter had the advantage of a previous run heading into that race and with a run behind him Straight Answer can reverse the placings. He looked a very smart type last term when his form included a most impressive victory in the Blenheim Stakes. The returning Twilight Jet is respected and so too is the unbeaten Anglesey Stakes winner Beauty Inspire.


Next best: New York City

4.15 Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden 1m

Kerkiyra can make a winning return to action. This filly boasts a rating of 88 after running to a decent level on her three outings last term and a repeat of her second to Limiti Di Greccio in a Leopardstown maiden last August would be good enough. Sierra Nevada ran a nice race on her comeback at Leopardstown in a maiden won by Lullaby. She is a threat along with the 82-rated Red Azalea.


Next best: Sierra Nevada

4.45 Royal Ascot Trials Day At Naas Handicap 1m

Amortentia filled the runner-up spot in two of his three maidens last season when he was defeated by useful types at Leopardstown and Dundalk. He ended his season with a respectable fourth to Dark Vega at the Curragh and a repeat of any of those runs could suffice.

Bridgehead wasn’t beaten at all far when sixth to Simply Glorious in a Leopardstown handicap early last month and could get involved.


Next best: Bridgehead

5.15 Tote Always SP Or Better Handicap 1m

The fitting of cheekpieces could help Luke Short to a third career success, one of which came over this course and distance. On a few occasions last season he was within touching distance of a premier handicap win. Crystal Black would look a major contender on his third to Max Mayhem in an Irish Champions Weekend handicap last September, a race in which Luke Short was fifth.
