Timeform on Southern France

2.05 Leopardstown Summer Pass Maiden 1m

Timeform Top Rated:
86p 5. CONCLUSION Aidan O'Brien Seamie Heffernan
85+ 9. SWISS COTTAGE Joseph G. Murphy G. F. Carroll
85 3. BUCKY LARSON G. M. Lyons C. T. Keane

Analyst's Verdict:
Conclusion shaped as if better for the run when fourth at this course on his reappearance last month and is taken to open his account here. Razoul and Swiss Cottage head the list of dangers.


2.35 Amethyst Stakes (Group 3) 1m

Timeform Top Rated:
121 1. BRENDAN BRACKAN G. M. Lyons C. T. Keane
120 2. GORDON LORD BYRON T. Hogan William James Lee
117 5. TRIBAL BEAT J. S. Bolger K. J. Manning

Analyst's Verdict:
Brendan Brackan had a fine 2017, scoring 3 times and shaped well when third on his return over C&D last month. He can resume winning ways. Tribal Beat has clearly had his training issues, but is in good hands and is much respected.


3.10 Derrinstown Stud 1,000 Guineas Trial (Group 3) 1m

Timeform Top Rated:
126 1. MAGICAL Aidan O'Brien Seamie Heffernan
120p 12. WHO'S STEPH G. M. Lyons C. T. Keane
120p 9. MARY TUDOR W. McCreery William James Lee

Analyst's Verdict:
Mary Tudor made an impressive return at Navan last month and is unlikely to be inconvenienced by the drop in trip here. She can continue on her upward curve. Magical and Who's Steph look the obvious dangers.


3.40 Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial Stakes (Group 3) 1¼m

Timeform Top Rated:
128p 4. NELSON Aidan O'Brien Donnacha O'Brien
125p 7. THE PENTAGON Aidan O'Brien Seamie Heffernan
124p 1. DELANO ROOSEVELT Aidan O'Brien W. M. Lordan

Analyst's Verdict:
Aidan O'Brien holds a very strong hand with Nelson, The Pentagon and Delano Roosevelt all prominent in the Derby betting. Preference is for Nelson, who beat his stablemates when making a winning return in the Ballysax over C&D.


4.15 John R Fitzpatrick Agricultural Contractor Handicap 7f

Timeform Top Rated:
113 13. CAPTAIN POWER Edward Lynam W. M. Lordan
112 6. NOT A BAD OUL DAY J. J. Feane D. E. Hogan (5)
111 11. CASIMIRO G. M. Lyons C. T. Keane

Analyst's Verdict:
Captain Power starts 2018 from a very attractive mark and gets the vote with Wayne Lordan taking the ride. The Phantom Punch could do even better handicapping on turf and is considered also along with Have A Nice Day.


4.45 Fitzpatrick Gallagher McEvoy Solicitors Handicap 1½m

Timeform Top Rated:
111+ 12. CURLEY BILL Noel Meade Shane Foley
110 11. TARA DYLAN Thomas Mullins N. G. McCullagh
110 4. MAWAANY G. M. Lyons C. T. Keane

Analyst's Verdict:
Curley Bill backed up his winning return at Naas with a fine second at Roscommon earlier this week and looks sure to make another bold bid here. Mawaany and Clongowes are others to consider.


5.15 Captain Dara Fitzpatrick Memorial Maiden 1½m

Timeform Top Rated:
98P 6. SOUTHERN FRANCE Aidan O'Brien Donnacha O'Brien
94p 2. KING D'ARGENT G. M. Lyons C. T. Keane
84P 1. CYPRESS CREEK Aidan O'Brien Seamie Heffernan

Analyst's Verdict:
Southern France finished with a flourish when just failing to make a successful debut at Navan last month and will have learnt plenty from that experience. He can go one better in the finale. King D'Argent and Cypress Creek should also go well.
