Curragh NAP - 14:25 - Back Sakti

Sakti shaped with plenty of promise when runner-up to Brilliant on her debut at Leopardstown in July, just found wanting for experience in the closing stages.

She took a step forward when again finishing runner-up in the Debutante Stakes over this course and distance last time, travelling better than most and pulling clear of the remainder with a filly who has franked to form since. Sakti sets the standard on those efforts and can deservedly go one place better.

Curragh Next Best - 15:35 - Back Vestigia

Vestigia cost €100,00 as a yearling and has showed plenty to work on in three starts so far, running his best race when hitting the frame in a valuable sales race at this course earlier this month.

He was ridden patiently on that occasion and still had plenty to do two furlongs from home, running on in the closing stages to finish never nearer than at the finish.

Vestigia left the impression he is crying out for seven furlongs that day, so he looks very interesting now moving up in trip on handicap debut, from what appears to be a lenient mark.

Back Vestigia @ 5/23.50 on Betfair Sportsbook
