Timeform on Alghazaal

Gone Racing - 13:30 Downpatrick

Gone Racing raised his game when beating Deauville Society by three and a half lengths at Tramore last month, and, though 10 lb worse off with that rival now, he is taken to confirm the placings. The six-year-old proved that breakthrough success was no flash in the pan when third over this C&D subsequently and probably has more to offer, representing the Mark McNiff yard that has enjoyed a tremendous run in recent weeks (eight winners from last 23 runners). Crimson Chief completes the shortlist.

Bubbles In May - 16:15 Downpatrick

Bubbles In May failed to justify strong support when second at Ballinrobe three weeks ago, but that still represented a promising start to her career, travelling strongly through the race before being left behind by the winner in the final furlong. That form gives her the edge over Walking Fame on Timeform's weight-adusted ratings, and she is a confident selection in this bumper for the Willie Mullins yard, especially as she may yet prove capable of better still.

Alghazaal - 18:05 Roscommon

Alghazaal showed improved form and shaped well when second in a maiden at Cork two weeks ago, just being worn down in the final 50 yards after making his effort earlier than ideal. That form comfortably sets the standard here on Timeform's weight-adjusted ratings, and, with further improvement on the cards, this looks a good opportunity for him to gain a deserved first win. Vultan has shown something to work on in maidens nine months apart and is feared most ahead of Alatar.
