"...with improvement expected he can make it second time lucky over larger obstacles."

Timeform on Pallaskenry

Snowflakes - Listowel 15:15

Snowflakes looked a useful prospect when 5 lengths eighth of 20 in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot last season and is taken to defy a lengthy absence now that she's been substantially eased in grade. Ancestral has hit the frame in each of her first two runs and is feared, ahead of Quinns Red Rose.

Pallaskenry - Listowel 16:55

A fair winning hurdler, Pallaskenry readily surpassed his exploits in that sphere when runner-up in a maiden chase at Killarney 3 weeks ago, giving the impression that he shouldn't be long in gaining compensation for this defeat, and, with improvement expected he can make it second time lucky over larger obstacles. Its All Guesswork and Wonderoftheworld can give Henry de Bromhead's charge most to think about.

Great Tango - Listowel 18:00

Great Tango gained dew reward for a string of consistent efforts on the level when scoring impressively at Galway 43 days ago. He makes plenty of appeal now handicapping back over hurdles and can come out on top. Easy Gold, Last Encounter and Dawn Raider are just a trio of others that make appeal in an intriguing contest.
