Timeform on Iconic Choice

Love Locket - 13:45 Naas

Love Locket, a half-sister to the smart Raakib Alhawa, shaped with promise when finishing runner-up at Naas on debut. She failed to build on that in Group company at the Curragh last time, where she met trouble in running, but she is an exciting prospect who remains with plenty of potential. She is worth another chance in these calmer waters.

Champers Elysees - 14:20 Naas

Champers Elysees showed improved form to get off the mark at the Curragh last time and remains with untapped potential having raced just four times. She stayed on powerfully to score on testing ground at the Curragh, so conditions will not be a problem, and she looks fairly treated on her first start in handicap company.

Iconic Choice - 15:30 Naas

Iconic Choice has yet to win this term but has run creditably on a few occasions, including at Ayr last time, where she beat only one home but still finished close up over a trip beyond her best. This drop back to a mile on testing ground looks ideal and she can strike for the in-form Tom Dascombe.
