2.25 Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Maiden 1m85y

Timeform Top Rated:
96 1. DRAPERS GUILD Joseph Patrick O'Brien Seamie Heffernan
89 4. SHIFTED STRATEGY J. A. Stack C. D. Hayes
85p 3. HUNTING HORN Aidan O'Brien Donnacha O'Brien

Analyst's Verdict:
Hunting Horn shaped encouragingly when fourth in a big field on debut at the Curragh last month and is sure to improve over this longer trip, so gets the vote over Drapers Guild, who sets a good standard.

3.00 Donnellys of Barna Rated 1m85y

Timeform Top Rated:
100 3. THE TULIP Edward Lynam Oisin James Orr (5)
97 1. SISTER BLANDINA John Patrick Murtagh D. P. Linehan (5)
94 2. ONTHEIFLIST Harry Rogers Pat Smullen

Analyst's Verdict:
Sister Blandina ran upto her best when runner-up over further at Gowran 2 weeks ago and more of the same may be good enough to take this. The Tulip hasn't really been seeing her races out of late, so Ontheiflist may emerge as the cheif threat.

3.30 James P. Cunningham Electrical Handicap 1m85y

Timeform Top Rated:
86 12. LUCKY MISTAKE A. P. Keatley D. E. Sheehy (5)
86 9. BEAU SATCHEL Adrian McGuinness Oisin James Orr (5)
85 13. ORMSKIRK Gavin Patrick Cromwell Shane Foley

Analyst's Verdict:
Plenty to consider, with Lucky Mistake taken to follow up Saturday's Gowran success racing off the same mark. He showed a good attitude under his promising young claimer there and could be the type to rack up a sequence for his new connections. Queluz was thriving when last seen and has a big shout if continuing in form after nearly 3 months off. Verbosity has to be considered also.

4.05 Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Median Auction Fillies Maiden 7f

Timeform Top Rated:
98 7. HIMMAH Kevin Prendergast C. D. Hayes
90p 1. AQTAAR D. K. Weld Pat Smullen
90? 5. FEISTY KATERINA Brendan Duke K. J. Manning

Analyst's Verdict:
Himmah may well have found one too good again, yet she can be credited with her best effort to date at Roscommon 3 weeks ago. She earns the vote to finally shed the maiden tag, with Aqtaar and Coeur D'amour 2 likely improvers fancied to also get involved.

4.35 Ardilaun Hotel Oyster Stakes (Listed) 1½m

Timeform Top Rated:
107 5. RED STARS John M. Oxx Declan McDonogh
106 11. PEARL OF THE WEST P. A. Fahy K. J. Manning
106 6. REMARKABLE LADY Harry Rogers Shane Foley

Analyst's Verdict:
Red Stars disappointed at Cork when last seen in June but the return to testing conditions will be in her favour and she sets the standard on the pick of her form. Airlie Beach remains with potential in this sphere judged on her hurdles form, while Pearl of The West makes most appeal of the 3-y-os.

5.10 Galway Apprentice Handicap 1½m

Timeform Top Rated:
80 1. PROSPECTUS Gavin Patrick Cromwell D. M. Redmond (2)
79 16. GET OUT OF JAIL John McConnell C. J. McGovern (2)
79 3. ATHENRY BOY J. T. Gorman D. E. Sheehy (2)

Analyst's Verdict:
High Expectations continues to go the right way, and remains relatively unexposed in this sphere, so is taken to resume winning ways here. Isabella Vite and Alohamora head the dangers, while Lady Magdala looks a likely outsider.

5.45 Sean Cleary Memorial Fillies Maiden 1½m

Timeform Top Rated:
96 7. BOUND Aidan O'Brien Seamie Heffernan
93 5. ALAYKHA D. K. Weld Pat Smullen
92 8. DAWN CHOIR Ellmarie Holden Declan McDonogh

Analyst's Verdict:
Dermot Weld's Alaykha doesn't look as exposed as Bound and can open her account here. Dawn Choir should be good for yet another place.
