The handicapper appears to have been lenient with MEDAL OF HONOUR in raising him only 5lb for a convincing win at the Curragh on Guineas weekend, when Joseph O'Brien's charge appeared to have a bit to spare on what was his seasonal debut. He can follow up here, at the expense of Bucky Larson and Lethal Power. [Alan Hewison]

Dundalk winner on final juvenile start and off the mark on turf on seasonal return at the Curragh on Guineas weekend, showing quite taking turn of foot over today's trip to win with plenty in hand; 5lb rise looks lenient and looks the one to beat.

Dual C&D winner in early summer and no disgrace since at the Curragh where 1m2f trip seemed to find him out; still appears on a workable mark and drop back in trip to suit.

Finished fourth to Medal Of Honour at the Curragh in May before winning 1m2f Roscommon maiden and ran creditably back at the Curragh last time; couple here look more progressive and may have to settle for minor share of the prize money.

Highly-tried since juvenile debut maiden win over C&D last summer but has looked a little out of his depth this season, most recently when last of 12 in Irish Derby, albeit only beaten 12l; drops back in trip here for handicap debut and has to be respected.

Dual polytrack winner yet to score on the turf, ultimately well held last time at the Curragh; step up to 1m not certain to suit and opposable.

Dundalk maiden winner last September subsequently ran badly in first-time hood in very valuable Naas contest; belated seasonal return suggests all has not been straightforward and probably best watched on this occasion.
