Timeform Top Rated
94 5. CORAL BEACH Aidan O'Brien Seamie Heffernan
86p 9. HUMMINGBIRD W. McCreery William James Lee
84p 8. FROSTY BEACH D. K. Weld Declan McDonogh

Analyst's Verdict:
Frosty Beach didn't progress a great deal from her debut, but she's well bred and in good hands so there should be a bigger performance in her. Hummingbird should also have more to offer after a break, while Coral Beach sets the standard but remains a maiden.

101 7. LADY MARENGO K. J. Condon N. G. McCullagh
99 3. FACETHEPUCKOUT Joseph Patrick O'Brien W. M. Lordan
98 5. VHAGAR Joseph Patrick O'Brien S. M. Crosse (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
Lady Marengo, a winner of a Navan maiden on her penultimate start, produced a career-best effort when runner-up over 6f here 7 days ago and, with the longer trip expected to be within range, she is fancied to go make a bold bid once more. Cosmic Horizon and Vhagar can pose the lead threats.

3.05 Navigation Stakes (Listed) 1m100y

117 8. SHIP OF DREAMS Joseph Patrick O'Brien W. M. Lordan
114 1. ZORION J. S. Bolger K. J. Manning
111p 3. BARONESS Joseph Patrick O'Brien Seamie Heffernan

Analyst's Verdict:
Ship of Dreams is still on the upgrade judged on recent efforts and sets the standard having gone close in a Group 3 at Gowran last time. North Face looked a very good prospect when making a winning debut at Navan and may emerge as the biggest threat ahead of Baroness and Zorion.

3.35 Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Fillies Handicap 1m100y

Timeform Top Rated
98 9. ESCALLONIA W. McCreery W. M. Lordan
94 10. WAITAKI Dermot Anthony McLoughlin A. J. Slattery (7)
94 7. PASSING TRADE Michael Mulvany Ben Martin Coen (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
Escallonia begins life in handicaps from a very appealing mark and, with plenty of potential going forward, she can come out on top. Liberty Lass boasts a similar profile and is feared most, ahead of Passing Trade.

4.05 Mallow Maiden 7f

Timeform Top Rated
96 3. FRIDTJOF NANSEN John M. Oxx N. G. McCullagh
95 16. RAYNAMA D. K. Weld Declan McDonogh
89 14. ENCANTADOR Ms Sheila Lavery R. C. Colgan

Analyst's Verdict:
King's Field left his debut well behind when third of 18 in maiden at Fairyhouse (7f, good to soft) 16 days ago and can improve past standard-setters Fridtjof Nansen and Raynama.

80 2. ROYAL ADMIRAL Adrian McGuinness D. M. Redmond
79 13. SPANISH DAWN John McConnell S. P. Davis
79� 6. VOYAGEOFDISCOVERY T. J. O'Mara T. P. Madden

Analyst's Verdict:
Competitive stuff, but Royal Admiral has been knocking on the door for a while now and a well-run 7f should be right up his street, so he could be the answer. Paddytheirishman and Roses Queen head the list of dangers.

104 5. MR ORMSBY Ms Sheila Lavery G. M. Ryan (7)
103 1. SILVERKODE Joseph G. Murphy G. F. Carroll

Analyst's Verdict:
This represents a drop in class for Silverkode so he is taken to regain the winning thread, likely at the main expense of Fuwairt and Betsey Trotter.
