WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

Fit runners don’t do much appeal, so it’s a guessing game regarding newcomers. LADY KIRI is by the same sire as the exciting Statuette from the yard and seems their selected racer here, so is given the green light. His stable mate Maybe Just Maybe and A Moment Like This are also interesting.

Not having appreciated the clearer passages in Naas last time, ELZAAM BLUE could pick up a first Turf win today, with the addition of cheeks a likely assist. Mulgrave seems the most interesting of John McConnell’s quartet, while the constant Apple Of His Eye and Chaos Control are respected.

All have a creak. HOW? ‘OR’ WHAT will find this endeavor far less taxing than his previous duties this quarter and could be back on the winning track. All In The Mind and McTigue were runners-up against older rivals last time out and, although penalized for it, are still capable of putting in big runs.

It’s competitive. DARK was very impressive in his victory over the hurdles at Kilbeggan last time out and made a lot of appeal in that area, with a good draw in stall eight. Smaoineamh Sile won in style here last time out and could well walk away with a 10-pound mark higher. Innamorare and Pro Bono were beaten on this occasion and are sure to be involved again, as is Down Royal’s recent second Reverberation. Tudor Manor were very unlucky in Limerick and could perhaps build on that here.

A good renewal where a case can be made for abundance. World Famous is a very interesting rider, entering this business for his handicap debut. Atavisque is currently riding the crest of a wave and will definitely be back, while Joseph O’Brien’s other rider Entropy and Star Harbor are also of interest. However, preference is FLYING DOLPHIN who ran a cracker in the King George V Stakes at Royal Ascot given the circumstances and is getting a generous pull on the weights here.

A crisp revival but it is very difficult to oppose it ROSCARBERY (siesta). She has excelled since joining Paddy Twomey and ran a blinder to finish third to the Pretty Polly, although she was disqualified in controversial circumstances afterwards. A reproduction should see her land here. Quenelle D’or looks the best of the British raiders with Colin Keane booked, while Mighty Blue and Emily Dickinson are other sure to be on the scene.

It’s very hard to walk away OKITA SOUSHI after a blistering run at Royal Ascot. He should take care of business here. Sandhurst is a talented guy who could give the selection the most to think about, but he has a 428-day absence to overcome. Shanroe can take bronze.
