Thrown into the deep end on his first two starts, tackling listed/Group 3 company, the Jim Bolger-trained Intensical can take advantage of the drop in grade by landing the opening seven-furlong maiden at 14:35. A half-brother to the smart Leitir Mor, Intensical hasn't shown much in two starts but he was essentially out of his depth and should be capable of producing a better effort against rivals of a lesser calibre.

Cape Glory has shaped with plenty of promise on his two racecourse appearances and he can get off the mark in the one-and-a-half mile maiden at 15:35. Having shaped as if in need of the experience when finishing fourth on his sole start as a juvenile, Cape Glory returned to the track nearly a year later, looking like a more professional proposition as he responded well to strong pressure to run on into third in a 10-furlong event. He may yet be capable of better and, with the step up in trip likely to suit, should be backed to shed his maiden tag.

Shadow Eile had yet to be asked for an effort when falling at the final fence at Galway (admittedly a fair way from home) and she can make amends by landing the Grade 3 novice chase at 16:35. A useful hurdler, Shadow Eile took advantage of a gilt-edged opportunity on her chasing debut at Killarney and she was in the process of running a good race when coming down at Galway. she is still open to plenty of progress in this sphere and it would be little surprise were she to bounce back to winning ways in this sphere.
