Both juveniles have good chances in opening races
Everything looks right for big run from Garrus
Paddington deserving of his shot in day's feature
We had seven in here at the entry stage and I thought Unquestionable shaped very well for Wayne when third to stablemate His Majesty here on his debut over 5f in soft ground in a Listed race.
Like River Tiber, he is a very promising Wootton Bassett colt - in fact he was due to make his debut in the Navan maiden River Tiber won - and I would expect the step up to 6f on better ground to suit him.
Mr Saturday is the obvious one to fear after his Naas debut but we also run newcomer City Of Troy and he is a brother to last weekend's Newbury winner Bertinelli; he is certainly bred to make his presence felt.
Democracy obviously did his job very well here on his debut, though I didn't ride him that day. The runner-up has been beaten in two maidens since, if running well on both occasions, but that wouldn't worry me. He clearly is a pretty exciting colt and hopefully he will handle the better ground here - it was heavy when he won on his debut - and maybe improve for it.
To be honest though, I would have happily ridden him or the No Nay Never colt His Majesty, who I mentioned earlier, as who knows how much more they have to offer after just the one run and one win? This will tell us.
But, outside of our two, it looks a very good race, and Noche Magica was very impressive when winning at Cork in what appears a good time. He could be very troublesome, and there are three others to worry about, too.
He looks to have a pretty good chance in this. He ran okay on his only other visit to this track a few years back and he comes here after a good win for me in the Abernant. He has Group 1 form, he is ground-versatile, and this is his trip. Everything looks set for a good run.
Obviously, he has a bit to find with the Guineas second and third Hi Royal and Royal Scotsman - the improvement the first-named found at Newmarket from when I rode him to finish fourth in a conditions race, less than three weeks earlier, was quite something - but I'd like to think my colt is a serious coming force.
He stepped up from handicap company to beat a fair stablemate over course and distance in Listed company last time, and I think he is well worth a shot in this grade. You have to love the way he is progressing with his racing.
However, he meets horses with Classic form, and let's not forget Proud And Regal is a Group 1 winner too, so he will have to up his game considerably, with leading juvenile Royal Scotsman probably the one to beat after his hard-pulling third at Newmarket.
We run three in here, and all have their chances. I rode this Galileo colt when he was just touched off over a mile at Leopardstown last month and he has since gone close again over 1m2f at Cork.
He steps back to 7f here and, maybe with the first-time headgear on, that will suit him off what looks a fair enough mark. It's obviously a very competitive handicap though, and you'll need the breaks in this big field.
Like Farnborough, he also runs in blinkers for the first time and hopefully they can see him improve. He is certainly bred to be a lot better than he has displayed so far, and to be fair he did show more for me at Cork last time.
Quite clearly though, this is Joseph's Up And Under to lose. He'll have to seriously underperform not to take this, you would imagine.
