2.00 Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Maiden

Analyst's Verdict:
Brick By Brick is becoming somewhat expensive to follow but went mighty close to opening his account at Naas 18 days ago, and more of the same here may well be good enough. Market support for Dermot Weld's newcomer, Betsey Trotter would put a different complexion on things, however.

Timeform Top Rated:
101 3. BRICK BY BRICK Mrs J. Harrington C. T. Keane
75 9. REALTIN GEAL J. S. Bolger K. J. Manning
72 4. WATERS WILD J. J. Feane G. P. Halpin (3)

2.30 Anglesey Lodge Equine Hospital Irish European Breeders Fund Maiden

Analyst's Verdict:
The King makes plenty of appeal on paper and could be another winning newcomer for Jessica Harrington. Swiss Cottage and the $3 million colt Mendelssohn should both build on their debuts and are respected, while Andesh is another interesting debutant.

Timeform Top Rated:
89p 7. SWISS COTTAGE Joseph G. Murphy G. F. Carroll
76 4. MAGIC SEA Mrs Sarah Dawson C. P. Hoban
67p 6. MENDELSSOHN Aidan O'Brien Ryan Moore

3.00 Loder Irish European Breeders Fund Fillies 7f

Analyst's Verdict:
Sizzling looks sure to win races and can make it fourth time lucky here. Stablemate Bye Bye Baby is a fascinating newcomer and it will be interesting to see how she fares in the betting. Muirin is another likely type on debut.

Timeform Top Rated:
99p 4. SIZZLING Aidan O'Brien Ryan Moore
93 2. PUNKED Anthony Mullins K. J. Manning
86 5. ULURU PARK Brendan Duke R. P. Whelan

3.35 Keeneland Phoenix Stakes (Group 1) 6f

Analyst's Verdict:
Hard to get away from Beckford, who could end the season as one of the leading 2-y-os in Ireland and can take his record to 3 from 3 here. Aidan O'Brien has won this 15 times and Sioux Nation looks the pick of the Ballydoyle quartet. Romanised shaped well in the Coventry and looks one to consider at a bigger price.

Timeform Top Rated:
124p 1. BECKFORD Gordon Elliott Declan McDonogh
120 6. SIOUX NATION Aidan O'Brien Ryan Moore
119 8. ACTRESS Aidan O'Brien Seamie Heffernan

4.10 At The Races Phoenix Sprint Stakes (Group 3) 6f

Analyst's Verdict:
Washington Dc is turned out quickly after his run in the King George at Goodwood but shaped as if back in form in first-time blinkers and can land a first Group race here. Son of Rest produced a cracking weight-carrying performance when winning a 5f handicap in the mud here in June and has to be respected. Kimberella looks the pick of the English raiders.

Timeform Top Rated:
126 6. WASHINGTON DC Aidan O'Brien Ryan Moore
125 11. SON OF REST J. A. Stack C. D. Hayes
124 3. KIMBERELLA Richard Fahey Declan McDonogh

4.40 Mongey Communications Apprentice Handicap 5f

Analyst's Verdict:
Aggression arrives on the back of a pair of solid runner-up efforts, squeezed out late on at Navan 4 weeks ago, but ultimately suggesting his mark is a workable one. He earns the vote to deservedly regain the winning thread. Snowstar and Accalia are others to consider.

Timeform Top Rated:
91 6. AGGRESSION M. D. O'Callaghan S. P. Davis (4)
90 2. SNOWSTAR W. McCreery N. M. Crosse (4)
89+ 3. ACCALIA J. C. Hayden T. P. Madden

5.10 Gabriel Curran Memorial Handicap 1m

Analyst's Verdict:
Vincy was strong in the betting and progressed as expected to land a 6-runner minor event at Dundalk in March. Absent since, he's unexposed and fancied to do better now handicapping and earns the vote in the finale. Windsor Beach and Auckland are just 2 potential dangers, however.

Timeform Top Rated:
106 11. MR ORMSBY Ms Sheila Lavery L. F. Roche
105 2. WINDSOR BEACH John Patrick Murtagh D. P. Linehan (5)
105 5. ST GALLEN John Joseph Murphy Pat Smullen
